I'm beginning to think that the garden is not saving anything for April, May, June and the rest of the year.
Today the blooms on the blue-eyed, Sisyrinchum grass opened.
They weren't too noticeable among the bluebonnets, Lupinus texensis, and purple skullcaps, Scutellaria drummondii, until evening. Late afternoon/ evening is their time.
The first claret-cup cactus, Echinocareus trichochidiatus, opened. Unlike many of the cactus blooms they have a life span of several days.
The white wine cup, Malvaceae Callirhoe involucrata, seen here sandwiched between the square bud primrose, Calylophus berlandieri, on the left and the alyssum on the right is a much more mannerly wine-cup.
The trailing wine cup may have a more stunning bloom but it is also can be very aggressive in the way it smothers everything in its path. Try digging it out when it has taken a firm hold between pavers. It has a large turnip shaped root. It is easily transplanted and very drought tolerant.
Clouds of damianita, Chrysanctinia mexicana.
In the evening light the soft leaf yucca, Yucca recurvifolia, gets ready for the evening moth invasion.
