The arrival of wildflowers in Texas is a true parade of color. The Bluebonnets come first, and they are quickly followed by every hue in the rainbow, including these glowing red flowers called Indian Paintbrush (also called Prairie Fire). This field also had a sprinkling of little blue Dayflowers which perfectly accented the orangey-red. I am ever grateful to the late Lady Bird Johnson, for her commitment to beautifying the Texas countryside. Our wildflowers are a huge part of her legacy!

Laurel, this is breath-taking. Last night on NBC news there was a segment on the wildflowers at Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. Beautiful photography of incredible flowers. Lady Bird really created a thoughtful legacy with this center!
