The diamorpha is in full bloom just now on Arabia Mountain, Stone Mountain and Panola Mountain.
The photo above was taken on April 11th on Arabia Mountain. We rushed over there to see these gorgeous flowers after Richard got off from work on Saturday. So glad that we did!
The red plant is a beauty and then...it blooms with these star-like flowers and it is breathtaking next to the grey rock.
Recently, I heard a woman on a cell phone say, "And they grow straight out of the rock!". Of course, it looks that way, but they are in just a very small amount of sandy soil... they are amazing!
Want to read more about diamorpha smalli or "elf orpine"....you may do so just here. And the diamorpha isn't the ONLY flower blooming! I will have to tell you about the other flowers in a future post!
The song "American Tune" by Paul Simon...I liked it in the 70's and I still do.
