As the bluebonnets begin to fade, the Texas White Prickly Poppy is now the bright white bouquet dotting the hillsides. It is a large flower, with delicate petals and a cluster of bright yellow and red stamens.
The plant has great medicinal usage, especially by the native American Indians. If not used properly, it can be very toxic.
It is said that the deer and cows will not eat the prickly covered foliage, even in times of drought.
This is an incredible scene that I wish you, my dear readers could enjoy with a trip to Texas in the Spring.
Thank you, for following along with another ride through....
the country back roads.
