From September 29th along TX 46 in Comal County here’s a panoramic view of snow-on-the-mountain, Euphorbia marginata. The many little yellow flower heads are broomweed, Amphiachyris dracunculoides.

    • I walked around for a while looking for a good angle, one that would exclude junk I didn’t want in the picture. You know what that’s like.

  3. I haven’t seen any, but this still is on the “what’s blooming?” board at the Tallgrass Prairie. Nearly everything is fading away now. The difference between Arkansas and Kansas is noticeable. Silly me thought at first there was no goldenrod in Kansas. Then I realized it’s everywhere, but gone to seed, and no longer vibrant.

    • That change in latitude can make a big difference, as you found. I found something similar in the spring of 2008 when we left a fully green and flowered Austin and headed north. Gradually spring receded and by the time we got to Iowa, there wasn’t a green leaf or a flower to be seen anywhere.
