Garden Bloggers Bloom Day from Big Bend

I’ve spent the past week in Big Bend Ranch State Park and Big Bend National Park. I wanted to post this on Monday, but Wi-Fi was hard to come by out there.
For those of you who have not heard of Big Bend, it is along the Texas/Mexico border along the big bend in the Rio Grande. It takes awhile for most people to get there, it really isn't close to anything, but it's an interesting place to visit. I'll post a few pictures from my trip in the next few days.
This is what was blooming there on Garden Bloggers Bloom Day.
Desert Marigold Baileya multiradiata
Wooly Paperflower Psilostrophe tagetina
Tree Tobacco Nicotiana glauca
Yellow Stingbush Eucnide bartonioides
possibly Centaury Centaurium calycosum

Thanks to May Dreams Garden for hosting Garden Bloggers Bloom Day!


  1. Nice pics. Lovely to see what wildflowers are blooming in other parts of the world.

  2. I'm so jealous - I love Big Bend! I've been there several times but one day I hope to get there in spring when everything's bursting.

  3. Looks like a beautiful place to visit! It's neat seeing a Bloom Day post with blooms that are all new to me.
