Spring


Spring has definitely sprung here in Schulenburg, TX. For the rest of the world that’s a very, very small town somewhere right in the middle of the triangle of Austin, Houston, and San Antonio. Rural is a mild word for the spot. But it does run near IH 10. (and if you’ve never been around here then you better hop thru on IH 10 from San Antonio or Houston and eat at Frank’s. It’s closing this fall after 88 years in business and their home-made bread is better than your grandmother’s!)

Ah, but I went down a rabbit trail…. on our (new to us) land we have a whole passel of spring flowers. We’ve got the usual bluebonnets and Indian paintbrushes. A kind of dandelion I haven’t seen before and some dewberry flowers. (If you want to take a peek at those I featured them in my 52 Tuesdays Challenge #19:Tiny)

Wow! I keep going down rabbit trails..though it is close to Easter…

So, in participating with Dutch Goes The Photo’s Tuesday Photo Challenge of Spring, I wanted to ask for your help with some of the flowers – some might say weeds (gasp!!!). I don’t know the names of them and please share if you recognize them! Much appreciated! and Enjoy!

On these yellow ones, the stems grow out at ground level much like a dahlia…

This one has petals resembling a bluebonnet except they are purple instead of the blue and are about 3-4 inches taller.

This pretty and tiny blue flower was scarce but seemed perfect on every petal.

This pretty, pale, pale, hint of blue was also 3-4 inches taller than a bluebonnet and I’m wondering if it is the first bloom of my second two images…
