Tass, they grow pretty much all over the State and are even propagated along Texas Hwys by the Hwy Dept. In some areas there are fields of assorted Wildflowers that are beyond description. Here is a link that tells about our Wildflowers.

Got some great shutterbugs here. Down in Texas this evenin', it was sunset time so I decided to do a little porch surfin' and listen to the 60's legend and undisputed King of the Surf Guitar, Dick Dale, who dispite his failing kidneys, is STILL touring gigs all over the country and wowing young and old alike. Naturally, I had my Longboard right at hand...

Let's ... go .... surfin'!!

Not very colorful, but our scrawny dogwood tree that manages to drop its blossoms right before the Memorial Day Q, every year but one.
