- Home is where the wildflowers are

Retrospective (5/21/2016)

Patch #111 Ripening dewberries



Original Post

Walking the property for the first time in nearly two weeks, there were a few newcomers.

The Seussian pink puffs of sensitive briar ...


Mescal beans growing on the mountain laurel ...


The first fully flowered Mexican hat ...


The aptly named stork's bill, which has already set seed ...


And an almost-ripe dewberry ...


Yes, it was delicious!

Your plants are so exotic to this northwesterner. I hope your day brought you some joyful stitching, too.

Stitching there was indeed, but I'll leave it to Dee to tell the tale when she receives what dropped from my hands

As for the plants, they are still a wonder even after seven years in the Hill Country. There is something about the naming of the things around us that makes me very happy.

your plant people...

I never thought of them that way, but yes, you're right. After all, I walk along calling them by name, so I guess they are indeed "my people."
