My New Outside Blog: Gorgeous Texas Wildflowers -- Part 1

Gorgeous Texas Wildflowers -- Part 1

These pictures are from a day trip I took with my husband on Good Friday.  The wildflowers were just beautiful that day.  Here are some of my favorite shots.

wildflowers

I took a field biology class in high school and we had to identify 100 flowers.  I was told the purple flowers above were called spider warts.

wildflowers #2

I don't think I've ever seen these cute little yellow flowers before.  They seem very delicate.

wildflowers #3

This landscape was just begging for a picture.

Wildflowers #4

I have only seen this kind of flower once before and I took a picture then, too.  They might be related to a daisy.

bluebonnets

Mix of bluebonnets and little yellow flowers.

Dewberry flower

We call this a dewberry plant.  They have white flowers and stickers on the stems.  Look for the wonderful berries later in the year (maybe May or June).  The berries are great for preserves, pies, etc.

mini horses

We also saw a ranch where miniature horses are raised.  There was a new crop of mini horses.   (I'll do a blog on the horses later today or tomorrow).  They are just adorable. 

Part two of the post should be done in a few minutes.

Liz,

Beautiful flowers!

Your yellow flower looks like it has cloverleafs, which would make it a variety of oxalis. It's one of the most difficult weeds to get rid of but if you find a field of oxalis, it actually is quite beautiful.

Oxalis

There is also a variety with purple flowers, which we have in a pot on our patio:

Purple oxalis

We also have a variety with purple leaves, but I can't find a picture of it on our computer, and at night the oxalis flowers and leaves fold up, so now's not a good picture-taking time.

A new "crop" of miniature horses? How funny. It just doesn't sound right.
