Description

This historical set of images needs a bit of context; the 3rd and 4th images show pages of my field journal which describe this "observation." A longer version of the story will be uploaded to a journal post.
Short version: This is the first ever photograph of Texabama Croton (Croton alabamensis var. texensis) on the day I showed the population to graduate student Steve Ginzbarg (U. Texas Botany Dept.; L in photo). I had discovered the shrubs during field work on May 31, 1989. I invited Steve Ginzbarg and John Gee (R in photo) to examine the plants on my next visit to the tract. Steve went on to name the plants as a new variety of Alabama Croton (Sida 15(1):41-52, 1992):
https://www.jstor.org/stable/41967533
At the time, this was a private ranch. The croton became one of the focal plant Species of Concern for the Balcones Canyonlands Conservation Plan. The tract was later acquired for the Refuge of the same name, primarily for its population of Black-capped Vireos and Golden-cheeked Warblers, but also because this spot (where this photo was taken) is the "Type Locality" for Texabama Croton.

According to Gould and Jansen, "some populations of S. hedyotidea in central Texas growing in moist areas (e.g., river banks) display S. texana-like characters, having
larger, membranaceous leaves and little stem pubescence." Since there are no collections of S. texana from Travis County (the closest being Gonzales County), we may have to assume that these Spigelia here are S. hedyotidea until proven otherwise.

Spreading Hedge-Parsley (Torilis arvensis)

Description

I like to get started early (in the Winter) pulling weeds out of my yard. One of the annual weeds that is earliest to germinate is Common Hedge Parsely (HP), a.k.a. Sockbane (illustrated here). Unfortunately, the seedlings are extremely similar to those of the native and desirable Chervil. Every winter, I go through the same routine of looking carefully to remind myself of how to tell apart the seedlings of these two Apiaceae plants. So for you gardeners out there who want to get an early start removing Hedge Parsley while retaining Chervil, here's how I recognize the difference:
-- The seedlings of the two species have a very slightly different "look". This seems to be a combination of two fine details of the new leaves: The number of ultimate divisions of each leaf segment of Chervil are fewer, often just 3, and the ultimate segments often have an obtuse angle behind the short point on each. These ultimate, 3-parted segments can look like miniature Sassafras leaves, if you're familiar with that tree. On HP, the ultimate segments of each leaf division are usually more numerous (often 5) and they typically have an acute tip behind the short point on each.
-- In the earliest, tiniest seedlings (one or two leaves), the narrow cotyledons of Chervil are proportionately longer than those of HP (last photo in this set). They are on very long "petioles" and they reach or exceed the size of the first real leaf or two. By contrast, the narrow cotyledons of HP are shorter and on shorter "petioles"; they are quickly exceeded by the petioles of the first few leaves.
These basic differences are illustrated in this array of images.

Common Hedge Parsley: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/103470306
Hairyfruit Chervil: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/103470307
At present, iNat's Computer Vision has not learned how to distinguish images of the foliage of these two species. As a result, there are hundreds of misidentified observations. Here I compare larger plants of both species, prior to their blooming.

On Common Hedge Parsely, note in particular the more acutely pointed ultimate leaf segments and the short, scratchy, retrorse (downwards-pointing) pubescence on petioles. At the latitude of central Texas, the leaves by this time of year have typically grown larger than those of Chervil.

Brushy Creek/Champion Park

Geranium sp.

I saw a number of these Geraniums around Williamson county in 2017 and unknowingly took shots of them in previous years as well. At first glance they look like G. carolinianum. However, they have 5 purple anthers instead of the 10 yellow anthers of G. carolinianum.

The only Geranium I have found in the literature which has only 5 anthers is G. pusillum. However, other characteristics of this plant, such as the pubescense on the sepals and pedicels and also the petal shape is different from what is described for G. pusillum. In fact the pubescence on these plants is a much better match for G. texanum (minute appressed hairs abaxially on the sepal veins mostly with retrorse appressed hairs on the pedicels), which is what I thought these plants were until I noticed the 5 purple anthers.

As mentioned, I have seen them in various places around Williamson county from out near Camp Tejas in the western part to Brushy Creek and Berry Springs more centrally and also Granger Lake in the east. However, though they appear to be somewhat common in Wilco, I have not been able to find any other Geranium observations in Texas on iNat that seem to match these (though only a small percentage of observations have photos good enough to use). Anyway, I thought I'd tag some of the frequent observers of Wilco plants and the surrounding areas to keep their eye out for this one. If anyone happens to have any other clues what it might be, that would be great, but I'd also like to see if the range is any greater than what I have seen.

The technical way of differentiating Zeltneras from Centauriums is by the shape and amount of separation of the stigma lobes. These details are unfortunately difficult to photograph, especially on Zeltneras where they are typically smaller. These were taken with a 100mm macro at 1:1 and cropped 50%. I actually couldn't tell if they were in focus when taking the photographs. Many were not.

This one was a lot neater and easier to take photos from than the first observation. Once again the flowers were all quite small enough for me to suspect this species, although I'm no expert on the morning glories.

Edit: Tracking nearby observations at Berry Springs Park and Preserve for similar plants/identifications.

I think it's Z. drummondii because of the relatively short perianth tube, compared to our other local contender, Z. chlorosolen.

I would love help in IDing this red sage, which looks similar to cedar sage, but the leaves have a more papery texture, the plant grows 3-4 feet in height, and is a prolific bloomer and spreader. Its defining characteristic is that while gorgeous to look at, it smells like herbaceous cat urine when crushed, pulled, or cut. The smell is powerful, lingering on hands or clothes until they are washed. It is one of the first sages to emerge after the winter, and one of the last to die back as freezes set in. Once it comes up, it is constantly setting forth vivid red spikes of trumpet-shaped flowers.
