Following the bluebonnets come the mountain
laurel, daisys, black-eyed susans, Indian blankets, Indian paint brushes,
wild roses, corn flowers, queen ann lace, poppies, morning glories, even
the cacti bloom, and the trees burst into color. On and on it goes.
The wildflowers continue to bloom from late March through to fall, one
color following another until you come to the planted flowers of winter
-- pansies, marigolds, geraniums, and flowering cabbages.
Winter last a month or two, then
spring and the wildflowers come back again.
