Texas Wildflowers

What’s that I see peeking around the rain clouds? Could it be? Yes! Spring is upon us in the great state of Texas. And, if there is one thing synonymous with Texas and spring, it’s our colorful array of wildflowers. People from all over the world flock to Texas to see our world come alive with the vibrant and fragrant colors that only wildflowers can provide. Brilliant Bluebonnets line the roadways for miles. Indian Blankets and Indian Paintbrushes create field after field of dazzling landscapes. With a wink from the sun, our Texas terrain transforms into a photographer’s dream. At every bend in the road, a new scene appears and another opportunity for a breathtaking image.

One of our favorite wildflower destinations has to be the Willow City Loop. Just a few miles from downtown Fredericksburg, Texas, this eleven-mile scenic drive brings thousands of people a day to enjoy the glorious Texas countryside.
