I did get out earlier with my camera.It was good light for taking photographs and there were plenty that didn't get their place in the limelight on bloom day. This nice stand of cornflowers.
Now that I have removed all the pink primroses and bluebonnets we can actually see this day lily from the front.
I've always liked the cleome although it seems to be difficult to grow from seed. Last fall it seeded all over the place but the seedlings died over the winter. It seems to need very specific conditions for the seeds to germinate and we don't seem to have them at the right time in central Texas.
Sometimes you just can't beat the way nature plants a plant. Here rock rose by the edge of the patio in the English garden.
Today I also spied a new variety of Mexican hat; this one with an orange tint. It's the only one out there.
I will often let plants plants grow until I am sure that I don't want them anymore. This was growing by the path in the vegetable garden. Delightful little flowers but I've a feeling it's a weed and I don't really want it. Worth a photo though, and maybe someone will identify it for me.
