Beautiful view! I'm currently editing a novel set in the Hill Country and used Bluebonnets and Indian Paintbrushes in one of the of the scenes. Wasn't sure if they bloom at the same time, but after seeing previous posts, I see they do.

Brenda Kay Ledford said...

Awesome photo of the Indian paintbrush in full bloom. I've always wanted to see these flowers blooming. You sure have a beautiful place to live.

Melissa said...

Your fence frames the flowers so nicely! I'm happy to finally see Indian Paintbrush too. I originally thought I saw this plant when we lived in California, but it turned out to be Red Hot Poker, which I think also looks like a paintbrush. One of the things I really enjoy about following blogs from all over the country is the local and regional things that I don't get to see outside my own front door.

edenhills said...

What a lovely view! Those flowers are so pretty.

ellen b. said...

It's a wonderful view of the flowers and fence. Unfortunately we don't have too many interesting fences around here, but if I come across one I will join in your meme.

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

They would probably kick me out of UMM (Union of Manly Men) if they found out that I love wild flowers. So, let's keep it between us--okay?

Beth @ "E." Lizard Breath Speaks said...

Goodness me Tex, you are one popular gal!!Good Fences ii just fabulous. Amazing shots, really pretty flowers. Spring has really arrived in your part of the world. Can't wait till next week when I see a tiny corner of it with my own eyes!!I'll be peeping out my airplane window and waving at you when I arrive in Dallas ....... sadly we will only see the airport, as we will be flying onto Pittsburgh 3 hours later. Hoping I can still so my Good Fences while I'm away.

Lovely blooms beyond that fence!

Beautiful fence shots! I love the wild field look.

Linda at To Behold The Beauty said...

Gosh, I like both of these images. I'm glad you included the close-up.

Laura. M said...

Spring is here!!!

Kathy said...

Unless it rains tonight or tomorrow, we're supposed to have our meadow mowed next week. If so, we will lose many of our blooming paintbrushes. I think they've created enough seeds to help repopulate for next year.

damian said...


Spring has arrived already and in your area, great :)
