A toadstool popped up in one of the succulent pots. Not so bad, but--
I'm not happy to see this one. Identified on ESP's blog as Euphorbia prostrata it is growing all over the place, especially in the granite but anywhere it can find a bare piece of ground.
Yesterday I filled a 5 gallon container and that was just from the granite pathway outside the vegetable garden. There will me more I am sure. I used my new cobrahead tool which did a great job. This plant produces a tap root which is fairly easy to pull.
The Texas cenizo, Leucophyllum, is flowering in response to earlier rainfall this week. I don't know what species this is as it was a seedling from a 'green cloud' which I moved round to the berm behind the pool. Too bad that this rain will have knocked off much of the bloom.
Everything is just dripping with rain. I'm off to see if there are any iris left at the Zilker sale.
