According to Gould and Jansen, "some populations of S. hedyotidea in central Texas growing in moist areas (e.g., river banks) display S. texana-like characters, having
larger, membranaceous leaves and little stem pubescence." Since there are no collections of S. texana from Travis County (the closest being Gonzales County), we may have to assume that these Spigelia here are S. hedyotidea until proven otherwise.

Only saw this one flowering example of this plant in the woods. May not be Euphorbia, but algorithm gives no definitive identification. Have to start somewhere.

Περιγραφή

I like to get started early (in the Winter) pulling weeds out of my yard. One of the annual weeds that is earliest to germinate is Common Hedge Parsely (HP), a.k.a. Sockbane (illustrated here). Unfortunately, the seedlings are extremely similar to those of the native and desirable Chervil. Every winter, I go through the same routine of looking carefully to remind myself of how to tell apart the seedlings of these two Apiaceae plants. So for you gardeners out there who want to get an early start removing Hedge Parsley while retaining Chervil, here's how I recognize the difference:
-- The seedlings of the two species have a very slightly different "look". This seems to be a combination of two fine details of the new leaves: The number of ultimate divisions of each leaf segment of Chervil are fewer, often just 3, and the ultimate segments often have an obtuse angle behind the short point on each. These ultimate, 3-parted segments can look like miniature Sassafras leaves, if you're familiar with that tree. On HP, the ultimate segments of each leaf division are usually more numerous (often 5) and they typically have an acute tip behind the short point on each.
-- In the earliest, tiniest seedlings (one or two leaves), the narrow cotyledons of Chervil are proportionately longer than those of HP (last photo in this set). They are on very long "petioles" and they reach or exceed the size of the first real leaf or two. By contrast, the narrow cotyledons of HP are shorter and on shorter "petioles"; they are quickly exceeded by the petioles of the first few leaves.
These basic differences are illustrated in this array of images.

I had previously uploaded a comparison of the seedlings of two very similar, early Spring members of the carrot family.
Common Hedge Parsley: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/103470306
Hairyfruit Chervil: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/103470307
At present, iNat's Computer Vision has not learned how to distinguish images of the foliage of these two species. As a result, there are hundreds of misidentified observations. Here I compare larger plants of both species, prior to their blooming.

On Common Hedge Parsely, note in particular the more acutely pointed ultimate leaf segments and the short, scratchy, retrorse (downwards-pointing) pubescence on petioles. At the latitude of central Texas, the leaves by this time of year have typically grown larger than those of Chervil.

Here are some of my original photos of the Travis County Trillium plant. I first discovered the plant on March 22, 1984 (first two images). I came back to measure the plant on March 24 (3rd - 5th images), and over the next few days invited several botanists and friends to view and photograph the plant. The 6th image (3/25/84) shows Dr. Marshall Johnston documenting the plant. The 7th image shows a young and curious Greg Lasley wondering what all the fuss is about.

Geranium sp.

I saw a number of these Geraniums around Williamson county in 2017 and unknowingly took shots of them in previous years as well. At first glance they look like G. carolinianum. However, they have 5 purple anthers instead of the 10 yellow anthers of G. carolinianum.

The only Geranium I have found in the literature which has only 5 anthers is G. pusillum. However, other characteristics of this plant, such as the pubescense on the sepals and pedicels and also the petal shape is different from what is described for G. pusillum. In fact the pubescence on these plants is a much better match for G. texanum (minute appressed hairs abaxially on the sepal veins mostly with retrorse appressed hairs on the pedicels), which is what I thought these plants were until I noticed the 5 purple anthers.

As mentioned, I have seen them in various places around Williamson county from out near Camp Tejas in the western part to Brushy Creek and Berry Springs more centrally and also Granger Lake in the east. However, though they appear to be somewhat common in Wilco, I have not been able to find any other Geranium observations in Texas on iNat that seem to match these (though only a small percentage of observations have photos good enough to use). Anyway, I thought I'd tag some of the frequent observers of Wilco plants and the surrounding areas to keep their eye out for this one. If anyone happens to have any other clues what it might be, that would be great, but I'd also like to see if the range is any greater than what I have seen.

Zeltnera texensis

Common in some of the shorter grassy areas. This specimen was one of the taller ones I saw on the day, actually exhibiting a fair amount of unbranched stem basally, unlike many specimens of this species.

The technical way of differentiating Zeltneras from Centauriums is by the shape and amount of separation of the stigma lobes. These details are unfortunately difficult to photograph, especially on Zeltneras where they are typically smaller. These were taken with a 100mm macro at 1:1 and cropped 50%. I actually couldn't tell if they were in focus when taking the photographs. Many were not.

I would love help in IDing this red sage, which looks similar to cedar sage, but the leaves have a more papery texture, the plant grows 3-4 feet in height, and is a prolific bloomer and spreader. Its defining characteristic is that while gorgeous to look at, it smells like herbaceous cat urine when crushed, pulled, or cut. The smell is powerful, lingering on hands or clothes until they are washed. It is one of the first sages to emerge after the winter, and one of the last to die back as freezes set in. Once it comes up, it is constantly setting forth vivid red spikes of trumpet-shaped flowers.

I happened to notice there was something strange growing out of this live oak.
Getting closer I realized it was a hackberry... growing straight out the middle of the trunk!
Following the branches to their joints, the trunk of the hackberry stuck out in a crevice where the oak split its trunk, and the rest of it was embedded deep into the heart of the oak. Who knows how long it took for that oak to grow that far around it? How did the hackberry even survive?

This is the craziest thing I've seen this week, and it has completely made my day.

I was out checking the rainlilies when THIS popped into my view near the drainage area. I couldn't believe it for a minute! This species of milkweed! Here! The entire time! How is it possible that I've never seen this until now? Based on the size it appears to have been here for quite a while. Where did it even come from? I don't even think there are any other observations of this species here...

First all those rainlilies, now this. The rain last weekend has really worked miracles.
I'm going to check some of the other swampy areas to see if there could be more...

This is really what I love about plants though. Even when you think you've seen everything somewhere, something new and spectacular will pop up!

Edit: I was wrong. RIP. Unfortunately it turned out to be nonnative Tropical Milkweed rather than the uncommon Butterfly Weed. But then again, another thing I love about plants: there's always plenty of room to learn!

I was watching this butterfly for a while. It was flying around, quite jittery of outside movement, when it suddenly stopped, fluttered in circles around a nearby oak (I believe a planted Quercus sinuata) before landing on the truck. I decided to try and get a few photos of it before it would inevitably noticed my presence and scatter off again. but surprisingly, it did not seem bothered by my presence as I moved closer to try and get better shots.

It was around this time I noticed its proboscis sticking out from the camera screen. Perplexed at what it was tasting, I peered around my phone to see, and noticed the sap oozing out of the broken twig it was resting on. The butterfly was feeding on the sap, probing its proboscis between the torn fibers and thoroughly enjoying itself.

In fact, there must have been something in the sap, either a lot of sugar, or maybe some fermentation, because it started to unstably totter around a bit. Almost like it was high on the sugar or something similar! Likely the reason it didn't notice or react to my presence was due to its thorough enjoyment of its lucky find. So engrossed was it in its behavior that a lucky bird could've easily snatched it up! Though it does look like it may have already had some past experiences with birds.

It happened that I found these two commonly confused rain lilies right beside each other! Too good an opportunity to miss. You really get a good comparison of how they differ from each other. Not sure if I should get this to species. These sorts of photos can come in handy.

Duplicate with https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/149740100, ID for flower on the left/bottom.

I went down to Austin TPWD headquarters to get a replacement truck -- the previous one had over 100K miles, so I got a new one! :) On the way back north, I visited this incredible park, Bull Creek District Park, to see some of the plants that Andy, Eric, and Joshua (among others) have seen. Really cool place.
