After we picked up our rental car, we headed for the San Antonio Botanical Gardens, I figured there would have to be a few wildflowers there! One of the first flowers we saw as we drove into the parking area were Bluebonnets! This is one of the many formal gardens. At this time of the year it was planted with pansies. We enjoyed seeing the different gardens, including the Japanese garden with the koi pond, the desert cactus and tropical area with bromeliads, ferns, euphorbias, and orchids. One large room in the conservatory was dedicated to just palms and cyads. A garden dedicated to blind visitors had plants with interesting textures and smells and had some of the plants labeled in Braille. I did find several other wildflowers in the Hill Country area, south Texas desert area and the Big Thicket sections.
