Lady Bird Johnson, wife of President Lyndon Johnson, is most singularity responsible for the propagation of wild flowers in the US and especially in the Hill Country. The flowers seen in these photos are native but without her efforts would probably be extinct by now due to overgrazing and week killers used on agricultural land.
This Red Oak is in my backyard. This photo from Nov. 2011 shows
the color it can produce
Blue Bonnets and possibly Texas Yellow Star
One of the many windmills found in the Hell Country along with Bluebonnets,
White Prickly Poppy and Texas Yellow Stars?
This Mountain Laurel lives in my front yard.
The Texas Bluebonnet is the State Flower.
I could have sat in the little valley and its' clear stream all day, but
unfortunately I did not bring lunch so had to leave.
Bluebonnets, Paintbrush and prickly pear cactus.
Yes, I did check under the hat. No one was home.
