Macro Monday {Texas Toad-flax}

{Participating in Macro Monday and I heart Macro.}

Texas Toad-flax 1/26/2013

{To see a larger image, go here.}

I spied this silly delicate wildflower growing outside the day before I took this picture. The wind is horrendous out here and has been breezy for days. I had to be patient and wait for a moment when the wind stopped blowing to snap a picture. This shot was the best one I took out of many.

It is way too early for this particular plant to be sprouting let alone blooming. The weather here has been in the low 70s (Fahrenheit) for several days and will continue to be in the low 70s for the rest of this week. So, it is no wonder that it is confused. But, when I spied this Texas Toad-flax, I was thrilled. Our short winter will soon end.
