A Tandy Hills Evening


A few weeks ago we went for an evening walk at Tandy Hills to scope out some Passiflora lutea that had been mislabeled as Clematis pitcheri in a TH newsletter. I got the general locale for the vine so I could verify in person and sure enough we found the plants and many, many more!

When we arrived we took the main trail from the playground out towards I-30. To the west was a stray shower over downtown Fort Worth.

We found the original plant…

and then 50 yards down we found more passionvine and a clematis.

Some flower buds were seen on a large vine elsewhere but we did see fruit from the passionvine.

One of my favorite grasses, Chasmanthium latifolium.

Always love this place. Scouted some potential sunset areas for later on this summer.

  1. Your photos are stunning and although I don’t know much about different plant species I find it interesting to read about it all and learn. What is that crazy contraption off of your husbands’ (I think?) camera? A reflector or some kind?

    I think I would like to explore that park! Looks nice.
