They are out in force this year. We drove south of Stockdale on Saturday, and around the Karnes City area, and spotted numerous batches of wildflowers. Well worth the drive if you have time. Here are some of the photos we were able to capture.

Yep, we took backroads back from Buda yesterday and the wildflowers were out in abundance! Along with this gorgeous weather, it is a beautiful time of year in southcentral Texas!

Those are some very nice pics! Thanks for posting!

Cheers! M2

Sorry for the poor pic quality (Palm Treo) - but there's a small field of bluebonnets, great for pics of the kids, right next to Home Depot on Culebra/1604. Even a place to sit!

We went up to Marble Falls to take pics of my almost 1 year old daughter in the bluebonnets.....the pictures turned out great! Only problem was we left the camera behind somehow. So we'll find some bluebonnets locally and take pictures with our new camera!

GREAT pics guyd - thanks for sharing!!! We took a drive around lunch today, south on 281 to Pleasanton, then across a county road to Floresville, then north on 181 to 1604 - and the wildflowers are beautiful in that area - I would say the bluebonnets are even a bit 'early' - and should continue to come on strong in the next couple of weeks!!!

Here are a couple of our pictures.....

Took this picture the last time we lived here, was out on the motorcycle near Leon Springs and spotted this magnificent beast standing in a field. Stopped and snapped this pic, and you can see the wildflowers were just starting to come out...it must have been about this time of year...



It's always one of my favorite pics!

Cheers! M2

Does anyone have an opinion on whether they will still be around next weekend? Can't remember how long they stay once we get them!

Stunning pictures, everyone!

Great pictures!

This weekend I drove out to a ranch in Seguin and saw a lot of these wildflowers. As a city dweller and having watched one too many horror movies over the years; I was a bit cautious about the drive to the "middle of nowhere," but those fears were trumped by miles of open fields filled with vividly hued flowers.

Hope they stay in bloom for awhile, I'd like to take my camera out next time I'm headed to the ranch.
