Greenwood Cemetery, Round 2.

On Easter, after going to McKinney Falls with Roberta and Beags, we made a stop at Greenwood Cemetery.  All of these photos were taken with my Canon Rebel XTi.

Bluebonnets (Lupinus texensis)

Bluebonnet from the top (Lupinus texensis)

Texas Dandelion, aka Small Flower Desert Chicory (Pyrrhopappus pauciflorus)

Happy Easter

Close-up of the fence at the back of the cemetery.  It took me a while to figure out why it looks like there are diamond splotches in the background - that's apparently what a fuzzy chainlink fence looks like.

Indian Paintbrush (Castilleja coccinea)

Pink Evening Primrose (Oenothera speciosa)

Spiderwort (Tradescantia sp.)

Another type of Spiderwort (Tradescantia sp.), or maybe it's the same type - spiderwort is like hydrangeas and will change color based on the pH of the soil.

Scarlet Paintbrush (Yellow mutation) (Castilleja coccinea)

Your flowers are so vibrant! You took some really good photos that day. It was a great way to spend Easter Sunday.

Lovely photos. The bluebonnet one is really interesting. I noticed when we did the WIllow Loop that the bluebonnets were quite different from mine. They have far more flowers on each stem. I wonder if they are a different kind.

I do miss texas wildflowers. Thanks for the pics...

Jenny -

They very well might be since there are 6 different species of bluebonnet.
