My Backyard Wildflower Experiment Continues

This summer I've been doing an "experiment" in my back yard. I have left my back yard mostly un-mown, motivated in part by curiosity over what I might find, and in part by laziness and distaste for mowing in hot Texas summers (even not quite as hot as usual Texas summer). That and our lawnmower ran out of gas nearly as soon as I started in the back yard last time I tried (luckily I had finished the front)...and it took a while to refill it.

Well, I've discovered a lot of wildflowers gems already!  And here's what's blooming wild in my backyard now!


This little white lovely!
What is this?  I'd love to know!

And WHATEVER this is!
Seriously, what is this?  I don't think I like this one.
Probably gonna chop it down...and I do mean chop.  It's huge!

If you want to see more gorgeous blooms,

  1. Thanks for sharing. Your flowers are lovely and I wish I could help in identifying the one you asked about but I don't have a clue as to what it is. Hopefully someone will be able to help.
