Wildflowers – I-37, TX

I popped down to Texas last week for a friend’s graduation (congrats, David!) and had the opportunity to take some pictures of the wildflowers that were still blooming – bluebonnets were out of season, but plenty else was blooming. Because of the rain, there were flowers out I hadn’t seen in years.

Same rest stop, just a few feet shifted. I love all the colors that paint the fields.

A close up of some of the flowers; the white on on the right is one I haven’t seen in a really long while.

And finally, a cute little daisy-type flower peeking out to say hello.

There were other flowers that I didn’t get pictures of, of course – I was so glad to be able to catch the end of wildflower season.  It’s one of those things Texas does much better than New England!
