Texas Wildflower season is famous for its beauty.  Here are some pictures I've taken.  All of these are on our property.  I guess we do have color, at least at this time of year.

Let's see...we have...






There are others but this is what we have captured over the last few weekends.  

One of these days, we're going to make it to the Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center.

p.s.  A few of the pics above I'm using as wallpaper on my office computer.  A little touch of the farm at work during the week!

Enjoy natures beauty!

Wild flowers are so pretty.
The other day was driving the countryside and saw a whole pasture with nothing but bluebonnets and Indian Paintbrush wild flowers. Was absolutely Gorgeous with just those 2 wild flowers together in same pasture.
You See . . .
She's a Wildflower
in a meadow of many
growing in the wild

She's different from any other
Smiles of brightness
And full of color
She doesn't need attention
In your well attended garden

You see -
She's a Wildflower
in a desert of few
growing in the wild

She struggles to grow
In places others refuse
Surviving the horizons
In lands not intentional
She firmly plants her root

You see -
She's a Wildflower
in a region of mixed floras
growing in the wild

It must be nice to have enough property to let these grow and be beautiful. I have a purple wildflower that is very prolific and loves to spread. It is a weed in my book. One thing about wildflowers is that the area does not need to be mowed all summer. Even if you do mow them down, they come right back. I know you enjoy all this beauty.

I love the colours! Right now the only colours I'm seeing are brown and dirty white snow lol! But I do have some green in my window garden so I'm happy for that.

the 'pinks' as you call them have leaves that can be gathered and thrown into your salad

What a beautiful paint box of colours. I love wildflowers. Our weather has been so strange that I have been seeing fields full of them even now, which is strange going into to Autumn but I'm not complaining.
