Grey Fox Crossing

Updated: Apr 17

It's springtime out here and a beautiful blanket of wildflowers cover the fields.

Herbertia lahue

Prarie Nymph, in the Iris family

Little critters everywhere, of course, in this lush green.

Opuntia macrorhiza

Prickly Pear Cactus bloom.

A hungry visitor.

This Prickly Pear is about to burst into a yellow blaze.

Anagallis arvensis

Scarlet Pimpernel, the tiniest flower.

Callirhoe involucrata

Purple Poppy Mallow, commonly called 'winecups'.

Purple dots in the field.

Part of the coastal plains of Texas, we get a mix of Mesquite, Live Oak, Persimmon, Anaqua, and others to make this place so beautiful.

Cnidoscolus texanus

Texas Bull Nettle, you'll know it if you find it.

A classic dandelion puff.

Verbena halei

Texas Verbena

Sisyrinchium sagittiferum

Blue-eyed Grass, also in the iris family

Oenothera speciosa

Pink Evening Primrose, which I've always known as 'buttercups'.

Soft and lovely. We used to rub them on our noses to give ourselves a yellow tip :)

These little daisies are the cutest English settlers in America.

Bellis perennis

Common Daisy, or Lawn Daisy, or sometimes called 'marguerite', but so are several other species of daisies.

It was a blue, blue sky over the lush Spring green this day.

Of course there are Blue Bonnets, but they have so many layers I haven't figured out how to photograph them well. Many people have though - just look on line!

Amblyolepis setigera

Huisache Daisy

Adding a bright yellow to the mix.

The Huisache Daisy flower in its end stage.

A warm, sunny day in Texas. Nothing better!
