March Bloom 2013
Midday March 10th, two days after four days’ accumulation of 0.27″ on Dry Creek, a little moisture remains. We don’t anticipate a great wildflower year with precipitation well-below normal. On my tour of Greasy with salt and mineral, a few beg for their pictures to be taken, nevertheless.

Every one of these photos is gorgeous. I’ve never seen most of these flowers but I really admire the Miniature Lupine. Lacepod, and Golden Poppy.
Fabulous wildflower display!
Thanks, Cathy. It’s been a wonderful exercise on more normal springs (when the cattle are making it on their own) learning to identify the wildflowers that I live here while honing my photographic skills at the same time, especially with a macro lens. Trying to pay attention to details, each flower can present itself differently, and thereby evoke feelings that are subtly different. I try to stay objective to be true to others looking to identify something new, but for me, there’s a just little more to it than that. Thanks again.
beautiful photos of those flowers. Interesting, I don’t think we have any of those around here (near Freeport Texas) except (maybe) the (white)clover. It looks the same but I don’t know for sure the exact type we have. I have clematis vines that grow all over my yard like weeds, but it doesn’t look like yours. I think mine is called August Max clematis. I wish I knew how to get rid of it. It’s got beautiful white flowers when it blooms (in August), but the rest of the year it climbs all over and covers up everything else. It’s impossible to keep it down. Is yours the same way?
The Pipe Stem Clematis is a climber, frequently found in rock piles and living with Poison Oak. Beautiful, nonetheless.
