We walked twice today and found these. I love the itty bitty white tips. And the darker magenta in the center. And the zillions of petals (?) or whatever they are. There must be a thousand of them, or more.
We also walked by lavender at the campground, and I don’t think that has appeared in the blog yet. The naturalist on duty told us that most of the shrubs and flowers nearby are non-native. I wonder how they will all fare long-term during this drought, with limited watering. The Midwest should send us some of its plentiful rain!
Ah! I guess I described it well. The internet told me that it is a “sensitive briar” (Mimosa quadrivalvis ) and native to the central US. It was the wildflower of the year for Kansas in 2010!
