Blue on blue

Yesterday Jerry sent me some of his favorite photos from yesterday’s outing. Here they are and thanks Jerry for sharing!

Not many of the Narrow-leaf Gayfeather (Liatris punctata var mucronata) have many flowers left. However Jerry noted this one.

I led the group up the ditch. And you will just have to take my word that we were going up the ditch. LOL

Further we go!

Here I believe Jerry took this where I had found a Banded Argiope spider. You will have to wait until tomorrow’s post to see the spider. 😉
We now had made it to the beginning of the ravine. Is there a technical name for where a ravine or gully starts? Checking out a glossary of terms, head slope might fit the bill. However don’t quote me. But it does sound pretty good, eh. LOL.
Out of the ravine and back on top. Suzie had asked about the red stemmed plant at her feet, the Queen’s Delight (Stillingia texanum). Several things say it was S. texanum. First the soil had a big limestone component. Second the leaves were linear. The other one, S. sylvatica likes sandy soils and has lanceolate or elliptic leaves.

The purple pineapple, i.e. the Leavenworth’s Eryngo (Eryngium leavenworthii)!
White on blue, the False Gaura (Oenothera glaucifolia syn Stenosiphon linifolius).

Blue on blue, the Blue Sage (Salvia azurea var grandiflora)!

Thanks again Jerry for sharing your photographic highlights!
