Beautiful Texas Wildflowers

Today I went walking out on our property. We are having exceptionally beautiful wildflowers this year. We had a hard freeze in February and then lots of rain in March and April. So the flowers are out in force.

The flowers on our property are growing in fields, especially the yellow ones. But there are fields on my way to and from work that are spectacular. They have brown-eyed susans, indian blanket, and texas spider wort. So it is a sea of yellow, orange, purple, and bright green. I'm hoping to get some pictures on Friday or Saturday.

The bluebonnets were good this year. They were out in force but the other wildflowers and plants grew up so fast around them this year that we didn't seem to get to enjoy them as long.

You can see more wildflower pictures in my web album.

And here are some bluebonnet pictures I took a few weeks ago.

In knitting news, I'm working on a sock using Knit Picks sock yarn. I'll get a picture posted of my progress soon! Oh and I'm knitting pink boa type scarves to raise money for Amy's 3 Day Breast Cancer walk in Seattle in September. I have 20 to knit. So if you'd like to help me out with knitting these or if you'd like to purchase one for a good cause, leave me a comment.
