You never know what you’ll find…

…in a prairie. This

Usually looks like this

There was a whole patch of ’em, too. Growing side by side. One more reason to save every prairie remnant that we can — each one is special and unique.

In case you are wondering, these are called Indian blankets or firewheels. Photos taken on Saturday at Simpson Prairie.

  1. Wow! A couple of firewheels!

  2. Oh my gosh, you’re making me just ache to get to Texas! My DH grew up in Angleton, went to A&M, then married this yankee. We live in FL now but bought lake property off 45 near Fairfield for our “someday” retirement. I don’t dare show these photos to him, he’ll quit on the spot!

  3. Ha ha ha, that is funny! Did you ever hear the saying “I’m not from Texas, but I got here as fast as I could!”.

    I’m a yank too — originally from Ohio. You’ll love it here!
