In a residential yard west of Austin.
Had to take another photo of this bloomer on Monday after my late Sunday afternoon walk-about to see "What Is Blooming In My 'Yard' Today" on the previous windy evening.
One of about 5 or 6 small flowers that I could find blooming in the lawn around the Environmental Center at Hornsby Bend yesterday. There'd been a light freeze that morning.
My life's work...
It was a single blossom of a straggler daisy, but it was there in Fayette County TX!
The birding slowed down considerably by the time I reached Beeville, allowing me the opportunity to document a few of the winter blooms in Veterans Memorial Park.
Bet you've never seen this one before...or at least not on County Road 101 in Bee County, TX. A new county road record!!!
(As you might guess, the birding was getting just a little boring at that moment.)
@sambiology straggler daisy??
Killing time at Garrison District Park in between my school and the kids' pick up.
Drove up to Panther Spring Park, and bummer, it was closed. Spotted a few things outside the gates though.
Went to McAllister Park on Christmas -- lots of kiddos riding around on their new bikes! :) I made sure to say, "Cool bike!" to each one.
Calyptocarpus is a genus of flowering plants in the daisy family, Asteraceae. The name is derived from the Greek kalypto ("covered or hidden") and karpos ("fruit"). Species are distributed in the southern United States, Mexico, and Central America.
