In my adult years, I have come to enjoy flowers. When I lived in Irvine, I would always plant flowers at about this time of year: Impatiens, Begonias, etc.  Things are different now. My yard in Texas is considerably more natural and unkempt. And flower gardens tend to become a buffet for the deer. So I’m not much into planting flowers.
But the good news is that they just come up wild, all over my yard. We’ve had a lot of rain this year, so the wildflowers are having a field day (so to speak). This weekend I counted over a dozen different varieties of flowers. I thought I’d share five examples with you, five wonderful reasons to love Spring.

Fringed Puccoon

Thistle

Stemless Evening Primrose

Agarita (watch out for those leaves!)

Bluebonnet
God’s artistry continues to amaze me.
