Description

One of the largest opuntias on the public (Western) side of LLELA, in (presumably) shallow soil above rip rap by the dam. Minimal mealy bug damage, potentially indicating low quality grass habitat for them to overwinter.

Associates include pepper vine, beggar's tick, and whatever plant I recently posted with 3-lobed fuzzy seeds (yet to be ID'd). *update* the aforementioned plant is Green Poinsettia, Euphorbia dentata.

Texas Prickly Pear, According to
http://aggie-horticulture.tamu.edu/ornamentals/nativeshrubs/opuntiaengelman.htm :
*has pads "bearing dense tufts of minute yellow to brown barbed glochids"
*and "Some forms are spineless"
That fits my observations of this specimen.

The site above also lists many traditional and current uses for this plant. Interestingly, I photographed this during an edible plant class.

This dense, low cluster of blue-eyed grass sent me on a (frustrating) review of Sisyrinchium identification. @eric_keith, Help! The leaves, bracts, and spathes of this plant were all glabrous and smooth. The plants were about 10 to 15 cm tall, growing in moist gravel near a creek.

Palo Alto Battlefield was my next stop -- although, I got here too late... They closed the front gates after 30 minutes. Oh well -- I spotted some neat things while I was there. :)

Description

This set of regularly spaced scars was conspicuous on a tree (beech?) near the trailhead of the Kirby Nature Trail. We wondered if it was human-made but it makes no sense for someone to scar up a tree trunk in this particular manner. Yet I can't think of any natural cause for such a pattern of scars. There two large "bands" of these small parallel slits in the bark, one above the other and the second batch was higher than anyone without a ladder could reach handily. It's certainly not the work of a sapsucker or woodpecker. Has anyone seen this kind of pattern before?

If the concensus is that this was not a natural (biological) occurrence, I'll happily delete the record.

Red clay and gravel in hardwood pine forest. Found by my uncle, Larry Keith and identified by Larry Brown. Email exchange below:

Dear Mr. Keith,

I received the clover yesterday and identified it as Trifolium reflexum L. From only the pictures I would have called it T. pratense which is a common northern introduced clover that is planted for pasture improvement.

Your clover is a native species that is becoming rare across the eastern U.S. I have specimens of it from Arkansas and Louisiana. Your specimen is my first Texas record. It is mapped in northeast Texas with a collection, probably at the University of Texas, from Anderson County.

I appreciate the specimen and I will type a label under your name and add it to our herbarium.

Best wishes,

Larry E. Brown
