After a dismal, drought-stricken spring in Texas last year, the spring of 2012 is shaping up to be a beautiful one for wildflowers! Reports are that some areas of the state, particularly south of San Antonio, are approaching the incredible showing of 2012. Phlox, groundsel, poppies, coreopsis, and the iconic Texas Bluebonnet are populating fields all over the area. Here are a couple of offerings from my earliest outings. Spring is here in South Texas!
