|Penstemon virens, low penstemon — I think.|
The early wildflowers (spring beauties, pasqueflower) were nothing much, but these penstemons came on strong. M. and I were in south central Texas in April when the bluebonnets (which are lupines) were blossoming—the slope behind the house is almost like that.
|Clematis hirsutissima, hairy clematis or sugarbowl.|
Oxytropis sericea. They are blooming in full force too. On the other hand, the apple trees in the neighborhood had a very few blossoms. It was chilly for so long.
|Four-nerved daisy or "Perky Sue"|
Its botanical name is Tetraneuris Ivesiana. Photographed at Trinidad Lake State Park on the first of June.
