During Spring Break 2009 (Mar. 24 - Apr. 2) Kenny and I went to the Hill Country of Central Texas in hopes of seeing the beautiful wildflowers. I didn't realize the area was in a record-breaking drought when I bought the airline tickets in January! Despite the harsh conditions I was still able to document 150 different wildflowers, 102 which were new to me. We drove 907 miles during the 10 days, where we visited San Antonio, Bastrop, Austin, Boerne, and Concan. We visited some state and city parks including: McKinney Falls SP, Bastrop SP, Lost Maples SP and Garner SP, the San Antonio Botanical Garden, Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, Cibolo Nature Center, and the Friedrich Natural Area.
This photo of the Bluebonnets and the old house was taken at the San Antonio Botanical Gardens, a lovely introduction to the Texas natural regions.
