Snow in Texas in August
Okay, so afternoon temperatures are still in the 90s (30s C), but by the week before last the snow-on-the-mountain plants (Euphorbia marginata) in central Texas had already begun flowering. I photographed the ones shown here alongside a pond in the town of Cedar Park yesterday. All the attractive white comes from bracts; the inconspicuous flowers are much too small to see unless you get a lot closer.
