Wild About Wildflowers

The wildflowers are beautiful this year....and I decided that I needed to get out and look for some more. It was drizzling a bit but the weatherman said it was supposed to clear up so I decided to take a chance. I packed up the Traveling Longdogs and off we went. The medians along Hwy 281 have some beautiful color.

This lovely dog trot cabin is right by the LBJ State and National Park o Hwy 290.


My next stop was the Wildseed Farms just outside Fredericksburg.


You can shop for gardening items, views all kinds of wildflowers, find gifts, try and buy wine, visit a butterfly garden....all right here.

The poppies were stunning this year.

In addition to the fields of wildflowers, there are beds of flowers on the grounds.





The bluebonnets and poppies seem to get along well.

Red and yellow poppies are bright and beautiful.



It's impossible to be unhappy or sad around such beauty.





 

We walked all over the Wildflower Farms (dogs are welcome). Then we headed on towards Fredericksburg. Even Willy was admiring the view.

I didn't take many pictures in town but got one shot of this well known restaurant.

This lovely field of flowers is on the south end of Johnson City on Hwy 281.




The Bluebonnet House is on Hwy 281 just north of Marble Falls. It's been vacant for years but is such a beautiful site.

Last shot is a beautiful field of Indian Paintbrush along Hwy 46 between Hwy 3009 and Hwy 311.

Wonderful wildflowers and springtime in Texas....a heady combination!
