variable linanthus ~ 07/14/11 ~ Garland Ranch

I'm continually amazed at how I'm starting to spot more and different kinds of flowers. It wasn't so long ago when I'd hike by something like the above and probably not even notice it. Creating Nature ID has really helped me become more aware and appreciative of what's around me. Those green tufts below the flowers are bracts, which I used to only think of on poinsettias.

Katie, I found some of this linanthus while taking on a restoration project here in my garden. I was very relieved that it was native, ..cute little plants. Mine, I believe, are True Babystars Linanthus bicolor.

Hi Sue. It's always nice to find something new, isn't it? Hey, what happened to your plans to do something commercial with your property. Is that still going or do I have my bloggers mixed up?
