Wildflower wander/wonder

As many times as I’ve posted about wildflowers, when spring comes to the Hill Country, I can’t help but post again …

Prairie fleabane
Bitterweed (I think … maybe)
Prairie verbena

As always, looking for bluebonnets …

Then my eye espied a butterfly, but try as I might, I couldn’t catch it with wings open. Until I realized I could take a video, although even that was fleeting …

Which is when it occurred to me that a wildflower video might be a good idea …

Of course, I was fixated on the bluebonnet, but as I watched the video back at the house, it was the tiny coral berries to the right that caught my eye.

Wait, what? How had I missed them? And what were they?

So after dinner I went back out and this is what I found …

A tiny little succulent that looks green when viewed from overhead, its subtle coral only visible when viewed from ground level. And it was everywhere I looked, just waiting to be discovered.
