Montana Tours of 2005, April 3, 2005, The Hill Country of Texas in the Spring

We are in Fredericksburg, Texas, in the Hill Country. We ate at a terrific German restaurant today, and went for a ride in the countryside. It is wildflower season here, the photos will tell the story.

Nope, they are not Texas wildflowers. They were part of a rather large
group, all enjoying a sunny Texas spring day, they took
the same scenic tour we did.

NOW, some flowers:











 Above: Texas Bluebonnets. Prickly pear cactus in front.

Right:  I believe this is called a White Prickley Poppy, it sure is prickley, reminds me of thistle.

cloudless beautiful sunny day in the Hill Country!

Above, a field of Indian Paintbrush. These, as well as the bluebonnets and other wildflowers are planted along many of the higways here in Texas, miles and miles of them. They are quite the sight when seen from that prospective. Colorful and breathtaking!Above, a field of Indian Paintbrush.
