West Texas Blooms


A few flowers and some prickly pear fruit from the Guadalupe Mountains in West Texas. I knew what they were at one point but alas, I should have written it down. I can't keep up with flora identification. Boo! But either way, there were tons of wildflowers in the mountains in September. All sorts of colorful stuff. Today's Flowers Mellow Yellow Ruby Teusday

I can never figure out the yellow sunflower-type blooms. There are so many of them.
All the photos are lovely. Surprising to see so many blooms in September. Our blooms here are mostly gone by then.

Thanks for sharing these. We are going hiking in the park for one week at the end of February and I'm not sure what to expect! I'd love to see cactus blooming.

Aren't bluebells wonderful, they bloom in the unlikeliest of places like high in the mountains, in dry deserts and on a very thin crust of earth in Iceland. After lichens, moss and a few grasses, harebells are the first flowers to colonise the crust between fumaroles.

Pretty flowers perfect for MYM!

There is an artistic beauty in all of nature. The artist captures the shape and color of the unique flora - and the composition of each frame stands on its own as beautiful!

Texas is beautiful when it's in bloom!

It tickles me for you to admit that you can't name all the wildflowers you see! If an expert like you can't, I don't feel so bad about myself! I mostly just enjoy their beauty without a clue of what they're called. (I do try to learn, but often without success.)
