Flowers Bloom - Spin Cycle May 3, 2015

Here in Central Texas the wildflowers have been in bloom for several weeks.  From my apartment patio doors I see yellow stella o d'oro daylillies, roses and some left over pansies from last fall.  All are in full bloom.  Outside my bedroom window is a small stand of Texas Red Yucca complete with sharp points to grab me when I clean windows.  A very good reason to not clean windows... But the beauty of the delicate red blossoms makes up for the spikes.

Roadsides have been in full bloom.  Many of the readers that stop by are too young to have even been born at the time of First Lady, Lady Bird Johnson.  She was a major leader in the return to wildflowers as part of gardening.  Her legacy lives on literally across the United States.  As she was a 'local girl' there is The Wildflower Center bearing her name.  You can learn more about it here.

Here is a view of one of the roads while travelling to a soccer match in mid April.



A March visit to California yielded more lovely blooms at The Carlsbad Flower Fields. Walking and riding, because it was 50+ acres of gardens, was a delight for all the senses.
