The Second Wildflower Season And More! JUN 01 2012
The Texas Bluebonnets were beautiful in late March and early April, but now at the beginning of June, the landscape around Fredericksburg and Gillespie County is brilliantly colored in yellows and reds.
Roadsides, pastures and hills are abloom with Coreopsis, Red Gaillardia, Indian Blankets and more.
Enchanted Rock State Natural Area and the Lyndon B. Johnson State Park and Historic Site are both reporting lovely wildflowers.
It is almost like a second wildflower season.
Mix in roadside markets loaded with ripe Fredericksburg peaches, blackberries, summer vegetables and peach ice cream and it’s a feast for the eyes and the taste buds.
Did I mention over 20 wineries and wine tasting rooms in Fredericksburg and Gillespie County offering up some of the best of Texas?
Sounds like it is time for a road trip to Fredericksburg!
