Posted on 2022-07-312022-07-31 by the_dr_blue07/31/2022 garden and neighborhood A Texas dandelion was open in the backyard prairie after a refreshing 1/10th inch of rain! Waaaaalk plzzzzzz We stopped to look at the vegetables on the way out to walk and this magnificent little jumping spider was on guard! On our walk today, near the sidewalk there’s some unmowed area near a creek. Around this beautiful and native silver leaf nightshade you can see a lot of non native and invasive Johnson grass. An American bumblebee was visiting the nightshade. It has a lovely flower. Mom has one that volunteered in her garden area. The plant has pretty flowers as it crept onto the sidewalk, but turned out to be a non native invasive species called Tribulus terrestris.
