I haven’t traveled all over the great state of Texas.
In fact, I don’t like to leave my 10-mile radius in our town outside of Houston.
Still, I can’t imagine any Texas towns that are prettier than Gonzales during the spring when the wildflowers are blooming.
And I was richly rewarded! I’ve never seen so many clusters of Indian paintbrush. They look so wonderful mixed in with the bluebonnets . . . probably because the University of Illinois’ colors just happen to be orange and blue. Hail, alma mater, ever so true (so true).
The skippers and butterflies, though, seemed partial to the maroon winecups and white false garlic.
I wonder if they’re Aggies!
