Hill Country is On Fire...with firewheels and other wildflowers

Trip Date: 4/20/2015

I traveled back from Ennis through the northern parts of the Hill Country along RR-580, 501, Texas SH-71 and Texas SH-16.  The trip took me over 10 hours and I spent a good portion of that time traveling from Bend, Texas to Llano.  The roadsides and fields are filling up with a mixture of blooms, including firewheels, Engelmann daisies, blue curls, greenthread, bitterweed  prairie and Texas paintbrush, lazy daisies, and what I think is a species of bladderpod. There are also some bluebonnets still in bloom, most are past peak, but here and there are some patches still looking very nice.

 


I have often passed by this water tank between Meridian and Hamilton. Not so often have I found the field covered with a variety of wildflower


Bitterweed meadow with horse - lazy daisies in the background


And I found this surprise in the southern part of San Saba County. The hill faces north (the south facing side did not have any blooms).


Lots of green pastures with large stretches of wildflowers
