We knew that the wildflowers were past their peak but we wanted to see what we could anyway. They were earlier than usual this year because of the warm winter and rainfalls. At first we didn't see too many bluebonnets along the road.
But then small patches of them began to appear.
The cactus were also starting to flower.
Then we began to see more bluebonnets in bigger groups.
This is rocky country so there is more than one reason to stay in your car.
This is the gate to one of the ranches along the route.
The cattle were enjoying the wildflowers too. Remember I told you that you would be traveling right through their pastures.
Can you imagine what this looked like before the flowers were past their "prime viewing"?
This area was carpeted in the red flowers as far as you could see.
The flowers formed a perfect circle around the base of the tree. I hope you enjoyed the trip through the wildflowers. This is probably the last you will see from me this year. This has been a beautiful Texas spring.
