Yes, my header picture on this blog features an edible wild plant! About a week ago I was walking in Austin’s greenbelt and found several patches of blooming dayflowers upstream from twin falls on Barton Creek. Normally these flowers bloom in the spring or fall, but not right in the middle of summer. It was a pleasant surprise to find them and even more welcomed because the leaves, stems and flowers are all edible and perfect for summer salads. There are several species of commelina (Commelina spp.) that grow in Texas.
