Texas Wildflower Season
Well, I suppose I should file this posting under the heading of “What to do When I’m Not Really Traveling!” I sincerely hope I am not boring my loyal followers with these “non-traveling” posts but, hey, I actually enjoy a respite by not hanging out in airports, taking off my shoes, going through security lines at airports, hasseling with rude gate agents, putting up with flight delays, jet lag, paying exorbitant prices for what-used-to-be-free luggage, etc. etc. Still, while I enjoy not having to go on a really long trip …. I still want to get out of the confines of the four walls of my humble abode and see something new.
So, I managed to get away from the apartment for a few hours about two weekends ago (April 16th to be exact) and take in the magnificent Texas wildflowers that annually spring up in the “Hill country”, about a hour and a half drive west of Houston. I drive along Highway 290, then north along FM 1155 and there they are. Some of Mother Nature’s finest flowers ever! I hope you will enjoy these photos and, as always, all comments are appreciated!! Really!
