11 years

with 71 comments

Today marks 11 years since the first post appeared in Portraits of Wildflowers. That inaugural post showed a basket-flower—then classified as Centaurea americana and now as Plectocephalus americanus—on the Blackland Prairie near the border between Round Rock and Pflugerville. Today’s picture, from May 23, 2022, on the Blackland Prairie near the border between Pflugerville and Austin, attests to my first encounter with basket-flowers this year. I went to that site specifically in hopes of finding some, and I did.

WordPress claims this is my 3846th post. I must be crazy. Or persistent. Or both.
