One thing I'll have to say about Texas is that it has some very pretty wildflowers. I was driving back home from New Braunfels this afternoon and had to stop by the highway and take some pictures. We've had a lot of rain lately, so the fields are just full of them. I was going to look up all the names, but decided it would take too much time, so I'll just let you enjoy them without knowing what they are.
I do know these are Bluebonnets...the state flower.
One thing I DON'T like about Texas, however, is the fire ants. I saw one of their hills while I was out. This one was about a foot wide. I always get a little enjoyment out of disturbing the little buggers.
If you're not familiar with fire ants, see the fuzzy brown edges of the cracks where I stepped on the hill? Those are thousands and thousands of tiny little ants scurrying all around. It's amazing what these little guys can do. You don't want to get bitten by one (or a lot)...it hurts and creates little red welts on your skin. I learned that real quick when I had my yard from hell.
