I saw this in the garden today and the shadows looked like a beautifully designed fan.
I have never seen these in bloom until today. It was a happy Earth day surprise.
It's a common tradescantia.
And finally, my wife and I drove out to Brenham yesterday to enjoy a picnic under this live oak.
I work as a volunteer for the Texas Forest Service and enjoy finding these large trees
to turn in for the record books.
It was 300 inches in circumference, 62 feet tall, and had an average crown spread of 117 feet.
It is the largest tree I've measured here in this part of the state.
I'd like to think it is one of the top 5 largest coastal live oaks in Texas.
I'll let you know.
Hope you get outside to garden on Earth day.
