I believe our unusually cool early May temps are my impetus to keep posting flowers. On my morning walk yesterday, I did see some bushes starting to bud out, but in this part of Canada, we’re still a bit away from wildflower blooms of any kind.

The Desert Vine, although more common in Arizona, is hearty and drought resistant in South Texas. 

Each of the 5 petals is only about 1/4″ long. Despite very little rain over the course of the winter, these tiny beauties kept blooming.

Even when the rain stops, these drought-tolerant plants prove that the show must go on ~ Birds and Blooms
