confused cryptantha...

Another part of my daily morning walk ritual is a flower count.  I am up to 22 different flowers I have spotted on my morning walkabout.  Some I have never noticed before but the most interesting I have spotted are a very few Terlingua Creek Cat's-eye plants that have decided to shoot up an inflorescence way off schedule.  Normally, they only bloom once per year in early March.  81,85,62,0,B

Many plants bloom in the early spring triggered by length of day. Length of the day now shortening with fall plus some good moisture to encourage it along. Several different plants will bloom twice a year under these circumstances, although I only know about this plant from your blog. This may be very rare.
