Watson Rare Native Plant Preserve | Part 3
In case you missed it: Part 1 & Part 2.
Wrapping up our tour of the Watson Preserve a few months later…
We begin the final part of the tour through the pitcher plant bog that was actually quite dry.
A bud of the Calopogon tuberosus orchid.
Love the orchids intermingled with the pitcher plants in this one.
Pitcher plants certainly have their own personality.
Love the unassuming yellow colicroot, Aletris lutea.
And the beautiful pitcher plant flowers…
I also love finding the green lynx spiders tucked under and between leaves. They can be finicky to photograph that’s for sure!
I really should stop and take photos of myself more often. I try to snap one of Chris whenever we are out but rarely do I get one of myself. A few years ago I did self portraits for awhile and they were fun but I was definitely self-conscious.
Erythrina herbacea, coralbean leaves.
Geraldine Watson’s beautiful home nestled into a sand hill near the pond.
More beautiful milkweed on this property.
If you are ever in the boonies of east Texas definitely drop by this beautiful property and check it out!
I love the picture of the “Erythrina herbacea, coralbean leaves.” It’s so earthy and subtly gorgeous. I know I feel a little strange doing the self timer thing, I usually make my friends or brothers come along on nature walks if I want to capture any shots of myself.
LOVE the milkweed and the pitcher plants!!
Love the pictures! The pitcher plants are really cool! The one standing there just waiting for rain drops to fall.
