Dick Benoit Prairie Preserve, League City, TX

Purple Pleat-leaf,  Eustylis purpurea
White Gaura,  Gaura lindheimeri
Kansas Gayfeather, Liatris pysnostachya
White-topped Sedge, Rhynchospora colorata, blooming in a wet ditch.
Bee on Prairie Plantain, Cacalia plantaginea
 Tall white Prairie Plantain and purple spires of Gayfeather
It may be nearly 100 degrees F today.  Whew - too hot for me.   But this precious fragment of coastal prairie is glowing with summer color and humming with bees.
