Is the last one a tiger lilly?

I was thinking the same thing but it just didn't look right. Spent some time with a key and found it to be a beaded pine lilly. First one I've ever seen but given it was named appropriately. Discovered by Mark Catesby and english pioeer naturalist. Its found in only 14 counties in our state. Thank heaven's its not protected.

Don't know anything about flowers, but what is a whale waller? :?:

Kenny its what we call an isolated wetland here. Just depressions in the ground with no water feed in or out of them. Some say, we used to be under the ocean here and some say these wallers were caused by whales. Others say its from meteorite hits. If you look at my area from a satallite you will see the little pock marks all over the place. Almost like a moonscape. But when you find seashells in your fields its not hard to see how they came up with the name. I don't know what caused them but I prefer to call them wallers rather than meteor strikes. More pleasant sounding if you know what I mean.

Interesting to me. If you had said meteor holes I would not have looked twice.
Are the first two cotton blooms? Just guessing, have no idea.

To me, the one looks like a hibiscus and the second a gardenia. Can't say I've seen a pink one before.

Both are cotton. Cotton is in the malvaceae family which includes hibiscus, mallow, okra and several others. Pretty flowers.

Jogee- I am slow. I did not catch on to whale wallers, until you explained. whale wallers equals whale wallows. I had visions of specialized walls built to prevent whale movement either in or out. Now I can understand what you are writing about, not that I have ever seen one but I do know about hog wallows. :)

Hey you can only use that so long.... :p

I did get the whale waller thing, just didn't know why you would call them whale waller instead of how wallers till you explained you used to live under water. :p We used to be beachfront also but it was so long ago the only signs of that are in the slabs of rock we plow up every now and then.

I thought you'd let our northern (and it seems Texas :lol2: ) friends go a little longer.

Jed..he could have kept me hanging forever. A cotton field is something to drive by and say "man that's beautiful". :lol2:
