White Prickly Poppy
Argemone albiflora / Poppy Family
April 1, 2009
On our last day, we drove on the county and farm roads as much as possible in hopes of getting one last chance to see birds and wildflowers before going back to San Antonio. I looked in our Delorme map book and saw a little community called "Bigfoot", it seemed like an interesting place to head to. It turned out to be a good choice, I found lots of different wildflowers along the roads.
These pretty flowers are covered with prickles that deter grazing animals and people who pick wildflowers! They were quite common around San Antonio.
