  3. I was born and raised in Texas. I love it here, but we live in the suburbs of Houston, so we don't see scenes like this unless we head up north. I love springtime in the hill country. These pics make me want to take a long overdue trip back up there.

  5. Wow, what a beautiful mass of colour - are they naturally wild or domesticated flowers that have become wild?

    1. Those are wildflowers, but my dad encouraged them a little too. This year they didn't come up nearly as thickly for some reason.

  6. What a beautiful yard of flowers! Texas has such a beautiful assortment of wildflowers in the spring, although I didn't see a bluebonnet anywhere in the yard! Oh how I love the beauty of those wildflowers growing... Enjoyed your sharing of this today :)

    1. Texas does have a wonderful assortment of wildflowers. It's one things I especially like about this state. We have different flowers blooming from early spring till killing frost - not always big groups like this, but if you watch you'll see them. These flowers are among our early summer ones. Bluebonnets bloom earlier, which is why there weren't any in these pictures. :-)

    1. I'm glad you enjoyed it. It was a joy to behold the year it was this thick. It's amazing how wildflowers look like a cultivated garden sometimes. Truly God's handiwork is lovely.
