Wildflower on a Breezy Day

04-08-10 Alternate

98/365 In the Breeze

I know...I need to stop with the flowers but they are just everywhere saying "take a picture of me, take a picture of me". So at the end of the day most pictures in my camera are either flowers or Dory.

I took this yesterday at a local park. There was a good breeze and I really enjoyed trying to catch the petals blowin' in the wind.

Pretty in Pink

Pink-Wildflower
Another set of Wildflower Picture this one....


Wildflower-Trio
...and this one were taken last Saturday at the Wildflower Center.



96/365 More Wildflowers
I took this one yesterday while Dory and I were out on our daily walk.
After a cold front blew through, it is a wonderful 70 degree day here in Central Texas so I will be heading out this afternoon to a local park with camera in one hand and Dory in the other.

Happy Almost Friday!

Wildflower Week - Day II

Indian-Paintbrush
Indian Paintbrush...

This is the first year I have really "looked" at other wildflowers in the area besides the bluebonnet and Indian paintbrush. So, I am learning and researching what the others are. Obviously, bringing a notebook with me when I was taking the pictures would have been way too easy....Next time maybe...For now, I'll check out the Image Gallery on the Wildflower Center website OR, maybe someone out there can help out?? Pretty please??

The park actually has a podcast you can download before you go, or you can listen via your smartphone when you get there. It explains about the different areas of the park and includes a special welcome recorded by Lady Bird herself in 1995.

My Wildflower Week

Bluebonnet
Texas Bluebonnet

Brochure1
On Saturday I took a drive way to South Austin to pay a visit to the Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center.
As per the brochure:
"The Center's gardens, open almost every day to the public, display the native plants of Texas with a focus on the Central Texas Hill Country..." 
and let me tell you...we are having a wonderful wildflower season this year! 
I took tons of pictures...So here in my little corner of the internets I am declaring it 
Wildflower Week!
