Wildflower Haven reports for
Got back from a weekend trip to College Station that started out with wildflower hunting on the service road off of 183 & I-10 based on reading about Rich’s trip earlier in the week. We stopped at a couple of places on that service road before stopping at the field Rich photographed. The firewheels were really starting to look good and were mixed in with bluebonnets, paintbrush and yellow flowers. The roadsides and medians were very pretty.
We then proceeded to Bastrop via Hwy 86 to Hwy 20. We stopped at the corner of Hwy 20 and Shiloh Rd. to see a small field of bluebonnets with red phlox that was very pretty. Across the street from this field was large field with bluebonnets that is near a cemetery. The field wasn’t completely filled in, but was pretty with a decent view. We took our daughter to the Independence area so that she could work on a photography project for a class at A&M.
