Hill Country Wildflowers

My camera finger has been itching to click on all the wildflowers abounding, but the sky has been often cloudy. The sun is needed to bring out the rich colors. However, this past Sunday was perfect, so Danny and I took Hwy 71 from Austin out to Marble Falls. Bluebonnets were everywhere; here are a few of the best…

Then, I remembered our backyard, where wandering Jew surrounds the trees trunks. The mild winter had not harmed them. Some of it is the purple leaf variety, while some have green leaves. Both have the same pretty little pink flowers.

On Monday, I had my chance to photograph Loop 337 and some spectacular purple blooms on one particular city street.

There are many photos I am keeping but not displaying; I’m saving them for later, when the sun has turned everything brown and dull with heat and little rain. I’ll revisit them occasionally, for greenness and blooms never fail to energize me.
