Wildflowers in Texas.....

it is definitely Spring here in Texas, the bluebonnets are in full bloom,
which means drives into the hill country to see the rolling fields filled with
these blossoms, 

cows grazing right in the middle of the fields...
a scene so common to us it's comforting.

some things should never change.



  1. These pictures are glorious. But if I saw that cow (steer?) grazing in a field... I'd run the other way!

  2. Did you take these amazing pictures? So lovely.

  11. I have a trip to San Antonio planned in November, wish it was in springtime. Just to see the flowers. I must say, I love the music selections. What is the first one that comes up. The piano soloist. Beautiful and relaxing.

  12. Growing up in Tyler, Texas I remember the beautiful Blue Bonnets and Indian Paintbrush. Thank you for the beautiful pictures!

  13. This seems like "photoshop"! but there is NO WAY!!

    Spectacular is putting it mildly!'

    Completely gorgeous nature!

    Here; there are so many birds nesting everywhere! (in our nest boxes! I will send out a blog when the 9 eggs of the mallards in our nest box hatch!!!

  14. Marsha that is so beautiful! Lucky you to be able to drive to see such splendor!


  15. I am now, officially, homesick! My aunt and uncle live in Dripping Springs, actually in the hills outside the small town that is outside of Austin. I have seen these sites in person and they are spectacular! Thanks, dear Marsha, for beginning my day with a song in my heart! "Deep In The Heart of Texas"! Melissa

  16. WOW is this what they really look like? Gorge!

  20. Oh my goodness. This is just amazing. Thanks so much for sharing it with us. Would love to see it firsthand some time.

  21. Incredible photos Marsha! Since I grew up on a farm it's second nature for me to see cows and horses in the fields. That's quite a longhorn there. These would make outstanding paintings! Thank you for your lovely blog post.

  22. These are beautiful images....wish I could be there and see it first pretty!


Please know how much I value your comments. I read every single one and do hope you will take the time to leave your thoughts. I think InstaGram with the Emojis have take a lot away from blogging, but I love IG too.
