We have been to the panhandle, the hill country, the coast, and many places in between, and we have learned this: Everywhere you go in Texas, there are wildflowers.
On our trip this summer, we drove more than eight hundred miles in Texas, most of it off the interstate. And everywhere we went, there were wildflowers.
Thank you, Texas, for Austin and its history, the river walk in San Antonio, the beaches of Galveston (we slept on the Galveston beach in a tent once, but that is a blog for another day), the Bush family, windmills, the Pulpwood Queen, oil wells, George Strait, and Luckenbach. Most of all, thank you for the wildflowers.
