I continue to weave the story of the Monday outing, we are still traveling along the creek.

By the late afternoon the Four O’Clock (Mirabilis latifolia) flowers will have fallen. In this example you see both the flower and the brown seeds.

Bull Nettle spines are like glass!

The skull of a feral hog was lying in the creek bed.

Anglepod (Gonolobus suberosus) pod.

Last year’s pod!

These leaves of the Anglepod were displaying some gorgeous colors!

I saw a nose with nostrils, but Jeanne saw eyes.

The Green June Beetle (Cotinis nitida) in August…go figure LOL.

A Eastern Red Cedar had a lot of spider webs!

I wonder why so many decided to build here?

Keep looking!

The more you know, the more you see and the more you see, the more you know.


  1. I can see a nose or eyes. June beetles on our pear tree. Never seen an angel pod. Cool. Fun grasslands trip as usual.

  2. The Anglepod has the hard-to-see green flowers. I would love to have it grow here at the house. But wrong habitat 🤷🏻‍♀️

  3. Anglepod grew at Legacy in Celina (I took you there for flower pics). I managed to keep one in a pot for 2 years down here then lost it this winter. I had debated if it would conflict/compete with Pearl in any way or since it wasn’t from here if it would survive.
    Celina is where I had my first Milkweed Tussock cat on those vines.
    By the way, I saw nostrils and the eyes are closed and eyebrows are at the top of the photo.
