Captured moments – Fragrant Sensitive briar

Good morning

Still one of my favorite flowers of summer, the Sensitive briar (Mimosa microphylla Dryand), has a small bright pink flower with a delightful fragrance.  The vine is prickly, but it is worth a few finger sticks to get close enough to enjoy the fragrance and appreciate the delicate beauty of the flowers.

Anemone berlandieri

One of the first flowers of spring in my little part of the Texas Hill Country.  This is just one of many blooming now.   Some are purple, some are white and some lean a bit to a blue-ish color or this lovely blend of purple and white. I love the bright yellow and green in the center.
