We did not have many wildflowers this year after May, which was very disheartening. However in the Autumn we got a burst of colour from these lovely purple gayfeathers.
There was a huge concern with the drought that there would be nothing for the monarchs that migrate through Texas, but thankfully some of the gayfeather and the rain in October helped.
|Narrow Leaf Four O'clock - morning dew - these little beauties bloom late in the night and the flower closes early in the morning - I was fortunate to learn from one of my Texas Wildflower friends when to capture the bloom.|
|Asters everywhere after the rain.|
|rock daisies which bloom in the spring and fall|
|some false garlic - which are part of the lily family|
