2010 – A Texas Wildflower and Bluebonnet Bonanza Year

Filed under: Texas Destinations — Carolyn Whiteside @ 10:45 am

The wildflowers this Spring were so beautiful and abundant that I took several trips around Central Texas to capture some of the glory that was to be seen.  The best internet sites to locate areas with lots of wildflowers are:   Wildflower Haven and Lonestar – Wildflower sightings.  They list specific roads and spots to be sure to see.

Some trips I made alone and some with my friend, Carol Serur, and my daughter, Andrea Garza.  We made long drives totaling approximately 2500 miles to these areas:  Southeast of San Antonio, Cuero and Gonzales, LaGrange, Inks Lake, Willow City, Llano, and, Mason.  In many areas the bluebonnets seemed to never end and went on for miles filling the air with their sweet fragrance. With numerous varieties of wildflowers all blooming at the same time it was absolutely incredible to see.  Some of the best scenes I photographed will be in the Hill Country Gallery; close up shots of flowers will be in the Flowers Gallery; the Domestic Animals, Days Gone By and Just Texas Galleries will have new images as well.  As always, if you don’t see the “one” for you just contact me because I have many more available in my files.
