Then we got to the Willow City Loop. It wasn't that there weren't any flowers but things seemed so much drier just off of highway 16. The grass was even shorter.
Somebody had an awful lot of old cowboy boots but it sure added character to their fence. The Willow City Loop is actually private road through ranches who are gracious enough to share. They just ask that you don't go traipsing off into the fields as there are cattle grazing.
We made one quick stop along the side of the road.
Angus doesn't like sitting on unfamiliar ground.
Willy was enjoying his afternoon drive too.
Steve liked the vistas he could see across the ranch land.
A spectacular wild flower season takes spring rains. They were spotty across Texas this year. Some areas have great blooms. Willow City Loop apparently missed the rains although I-10 got enough to be really great.
It is definitely dry here.
We stopped back in Fredricksburg for a walk and lunch.
And we got caught in some sprinkles on the way back home.
This field is in Cibolo, Texas.
Hope you enjoyed the wildflowers. They will disappear for the year before we know it.
