Wildflowers near the Piedra Lisa trailhead-part two

The recent rains have eased our drought and the wild flowers love it!  A few more things are blooming on our mountainside since my last post about wildflowers near the Piedra Lisa trail head. 
Robinia neomexicana (New Mexico Locust)

Palmer penstemon
Daisy, Silver Kisses ?
Cirsium neomexicanum A. Gray
New Mexico thistle

Considered an invasive species and a noxious weed by some, this plant provides an important food source for monarch butterflies who are endangered.


  1. So beautiful. I want you to post some more pictures of your walkway.

  2. I was just wondering today if the stream near your house is running.


I love hearing from you. Please let me know you visited.
