Indian Blankets

Photo 062

Lesser known than the famous Texas Bluebonnets, the Indian Blanket flower is quite pretty. It blooms later than Bluebonnets so it doesn't have to share the limelight. It is a couple of weeks past prime right now. I took this and forgot to post it earlier.

It is amazing to me the variety of wildflowers in south Texas. I am really enjoying getting to know more about flowers that I did not know growing up in North Carolina.

Have a good week everyone.

These flowers are purty! And I've heard of them before, but now I have an image a great one too to match it to in my head. I'll have to see if I can plant some of these.

This is the first time I've seen these flowers. I wonder if we have them in India??!!

If you see them, you know what you should do, WebOJ. If anyone sees this in their area, do let us all know.
