Mary, thank you, and Charlie, I am glad you got it identified.
Doris, your rose of Sharon is beautiful.
Thanks for trying, Doris. I got the answer from one of my Master Gardeners. It's known as Devil's Claw or Unicorn Plant, Proboscidea fragrans. When the pod is mature it splits, curls and assumes a curious shape that crafters love. Some Mexicans believe it causes insanity. All that from Wild Flowers of the United States, H.W.Rikett. It is unwelcome in pastures. Apparently likes dry conditions. Non-edible I think. Here's a pic of the fruit.
While I cannot be certain, because it does not appear to be vining and is more compact/bushy, it seems to me to be a type of summer squash, but what type I could not say, Charlie.
Can some Texan ID this plant for me. A friend found it near Austin, TX. I know it's a cucurbic, but I'm lost after that. Thanks.
The only thing I have to comment is that I am loving these cooler temperatures and the rain we got the other day. My roses of sharon are going crazy! I am going to have to cut them back as they are crowding the gate and my white rose of sharon is completely covered on two sides by the larger ones and really can only be seen from the side front yard.
seems like this group has ended but I'll add something hopeing someone will answer.
I live in se texas and I have seen NO humming birds
I'll be moving in late July. That is if the contract goes through to a new house with no trees. I feel sadden that I may not get to see my hummers for a long time... at least until I get may garden going.
And, I have to add, I saw a hummer come to one of my feeders last night for a quick sip. I was in the right place at the right time because it only took two sips and was off.
I saw a hummer a few days ago and about a week before that my sister saw one at her house. We both live in Lewisville, near Dallas. And, I am LOVING this rain!
