Wildflower Explosion

Uploaded: August 19, 2020 | Entered: August 19, 2020 09:23:09


Altho every spring in the Texas Hill Country is a treat for the senses, some years when the spring and autumn rains and temperatures are just the right amount for a "super bloom", Mother Nature puts on a spectacular and unforgettable show. Every field, meadow and roadside ditch is blanketed in a myriad of colors with each variety of flower seemingly vying for center stage.
