Gorgeous Texas Wild Flowers -- Part 2

creek

Day trip from Houston in early April 2010.  This creek is near a beautiful patch of yellow flowers covering several meadows.

I'm not sure I've ever seen these flowers before, but this trip I was looking at even the smallest flowers.

Yellow flowers go on and on.

mini horse w/mama

This miniature horse is not very old.  He is being nuzzled by his mama.  He looks so soft.

Bluebonnets, spider wort (or wart) and cute pink flowers with the Texas star in the middle.

Nice white flowers look great against the greenery.

Here are more of the "Texas Star" flower, but the flower petals are red, not purple or pink.

Hope you get to explore your part of the country and see the wildflowers.  Email me a picture or two.

That field of bluebonnets is beautiful. I remember when Russel and I drove from San Antonio to Austin to College Station to Houston one Spring and how beautiful the highways were, particularly the drive from College Station to Houston.

Hey Jim, yes the Texas Department of Highways is very good about seeding the highways.  There were alot more yellow flowers this year than I remember from previous years.

That little horse is adorable. I've found lots of fields of yellow out here, and yellow is supposed to be bright, cheerful, sunny, etc., but I think I really do prefer the fields of Texas bluebonnets.
