Colors of Texas

This past weekend we took a drive out to Poteet, TX. Our plan was to pick strawberries at a local farm. I had no idea that we would find fields and fields of wildflowers along HWY 16! I am so glad Chuck was doing the driving, or we might have crashed, LOL. I was enthralled with all the colors. I am sure I drove Chuck nuts with all my “Look at that!” “Ohhhh, look at that field!” “Look at all the colors”. As someone who loves to take pictures, this was a dream come true. Why we never took a drive along HWY 16 before, is beyond me. We have lived in San Antonio for almost 12 years! So of course after we finished picking strawberries (be sure to read that post) we had to find a safe place to pull off and take pictures (btw, no filter was used on these pictures). Unfortunately, I am not a gardener by any stretch of the imagination, nor do I have a green thumb to even attempt to keep a garden. So I can only identify the bluebonnets. If you know the other flowers, please let me know in the comments. I definitely need some education when it comes to flowers.

“And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin.” Matthew 6:28 NIV
Fields of these flowers are all along HWY 16 heading to Poteet, TX
Wildflowers in bloom in Texas
Love the beauty of Texas
God’s creation is displayed in the beauty of flowers.

I highly recommend you head on out along HWY 16 towards Poteet sometime in the next couple of weeks to see the amazing spring colors of Texas.
