More Texas wildflowers to enjoy...

The deer nibbled on some of these coreopsis tinctura when they first started growing in the spring, but they persevered and are now full of blooms.

I love how they look against the structure of the grey Gopher plant.

This is in the bed planted outside our back fence where there is no irrigation.  Once or twice a month in the middle of the scorching summer heat and drought I drag an extra long hose out there and water a little.  It's my drought- tolerant test bed.  These are REAL drought conditions.

We've had lots of fall and spring rain, so the plants are quite happy -- for now!
