I am always pleased to have someone to go with me on my nature walks at Wildcat Bluff. I had a special treat today when Joanne Toler came out to walk with me because she knows a lot more about our resident plants than I do. Joanne is the current president of the Amarillo Chapter of the Texas Native Plant Society and has contributed hundreds of volunteer hours at the nature center for two decades. She was the first to spot the bladderpod bloom.
The following are some of the other early blooms we found along the way.
