A Wildflower Adventure

We went on a wildflower adventure today. We headed up to Brenham (Washington County, Texas), where we saw a few along the roadside, but not very many at places where I could pull over to take the pictures that I wanted to take. We did find a few in front of the Giddings Stone Mansion along with some beautiful roses.

There were zillions of them in Austin County near Bellville in both directions and in the median.  I settled for the roadside flowers because it is too dangerous to try to walk over to the median, even though it had a tremendous amount of flowers. I don’t need to have “Flattened for a Bluebonnet” engraved on my name rock. 🙂

Here are a few of my favorite shots from today.

Isn’t Heavenly Father a wonderful landscape artist? 🙂

Have a blessed day, y’all!

    • Thank you, Ellen. 🙂

      I love photographing flowers and there are so many around here this time of year especially. Really, there are flowers throughout the year here. I think they sometimes forget that they are supposed to take a winter break. 🙂 Have a blessed day.
