American basket flower
I love to celebrate a new wildflower when they walk onto my land. I have 2 very healthy basket flowers where I have never seen them before on this land. God knows I have been yanking yellow star thistle and canadian thistle all spring long. It is great to get a new-to-me native show its face here instead. It looks a little like a thistle flower. It and I am lucky that I wasn't on auto pilot in my yanking frenzy. I would love to post a photo but my computer is down and I am not able to get my photos downloaded and all that jive to my flicker account. I will be out there in the morning with my camera.I found it just as the sun was going down. It was right where I want to plant a salvia gregii. I almost dug it up.
I included the LBJ wildflower entry for it below.
