And out in the middle of the field is this one, tall plant.
I have no idea what it is, and a flip through my book of Texas wildflowers didn't turn up anything that I thought fit quite right.
Do you know what it is?
It's growing in rock and has little to no water since we are in a drought and the field has no irrigation of any sort.
She'd really like to know -- can you help Maria name this plant?
On a side note:
My garden and my weeds are overgrowing and I've neglected my blogging for a while because my Mom's been in the hospital twice in the last few weeks and I've been there with her. We got a good post-surgical prognosis today, so she's going to be on the mend soon.
And I'll be back in due time.
