55/365: Huisache blossom

Here's the companion piece to that image of a huisache bud I posted a couple of days ago. It's strange, because most of the year huisache seem pretty much the same as mesquite in the Texas countryside, but come spring--BOOM!--they burst out in these incredible displays of yellow-orange flowers. And the flowers themselves are bizarrely intricate puff ball-looking things. I even found a wine recipe online that uses huisache flowers as a main ingredient. Imagine that.
