May: Wild Flowers

Please be sure to visit Jude at The Earth Laughs in Flowers to see many other beautiful flowers. To learn more about her garden photography challenge, click here.

Over the last two weeks, we have put a great deal of mileage on the car and ourselves getting our two daughters moved in and out of dormitories at universities over 200 miles apart and in opposite directions from our home. That was about 1200 miles worth of driving, with two round trips for one daughter and five for the other one.

Here are a couple of flower photos taken between here and Corpus Christi, Texas.


Sunflowers, Port Lavaca, Texas, 14 May 2016


These flowers were along the side of the road in an area near the town of Lolita, Texas. I don’t know what they are, but thought they were very interesting.

It seems that every time we go to Corpus Christi, the sky is dreary and overcast. We have yet to make a trip down there to have the sunshine greet us. Maybe next time!

    Part of my childhood was in SE Texas. I loved it there, and was disappointed to return to the Midwest. Lovely post.

      Thank you, Annie. 🙂

      Why did you have to move?

      We’re not native to Texas ourselves. We moved here from South Carolina in 2004. The wildflowers are the best part of living in Texas, I think. The bluebonnets are the big deal here, but I look forward to all of the different flowers. The first ones that I look for in March are the Indian Paintbrushes because I know it won’t be long before the others show up once I see those. 🙂

      Have a blessed evening!

      You’re welcome, Leslie, and thank you for visiting me, too. Sunflowers are one of my favorite flowers. I love how they reach for the sun. It is kind of a reminder of how we should do the same, reach for the Son. Have a blessed night. 🙂

    Maybe next time! 🙂 I wouldn’t recommend that you come to my home town. We’re equally short on sunshine. 🙂 Thanks for the follow.
