Around Alpine today

Getting restless stuck here in town. Gonna have to head south soon. Prowling around town I enjoyed seeing this cool car at the Sul Ross campus.

In front of the university there's a cactus garden. Not much going on there. I photographed a few of the cacti, but none were blooming. I've forgotten the names of them now. I think this was some type of pincushion cactus.

On our patio the pansies are looking good.

And there are lots of these wildflowers where bluebonnets will soon bloom. They look somewhat like phacelia but I don't know what they are.


  1. I think that's crane's bill. Just guessing.

  2. I googled Crane's bill and couldn't tell. Sure wish I could take better photos. Thanks for weighing in.

  3. I believe that is Lamium amplexicaule, commonly known as henbit.

  4. That's it, Carla. Thank you so much for the ID.

  5. I think the cactus is lace cactus except with mine the flower buds are white.

  6. Could be. I should go back and read the label and write it down. Thanks.
