In the pink

Thurber Perezia (Acourtia thurberi) looks a lot like Brownfoot (Acourtia wrightii). We saw a number of these plants on the Esperero Trail. Thanks to Joan Tedford, I now know that this is, in fact, Brownfoot (Acourtia wrightii). Hooray!

New Mexico Thistle (Cirsium neomexicanum) is also in bloom near the creek. Both of these plants are in the Aster/Sunflower family. How about that?
