While in Kerrville we drove to Fredericksburg and visited the Wildseed Farm, which is the nation's largest working wildflower farm.
We came to see the bluebonnets which were at 100% blooming and the red corn poppy which are at 50%. Here is an up close view of the bluebonnet.
There were many fields with bluebonnets.
A red corn poppy up close.
Fields of red corn poppy were also viewable.
There was a trail behind the gift shop where you could walk to the various fields and if you got tired they had park benches along the way.
A lot of neat stuff on the trails, giraffe and Lone Star.
When we had finished we went through the gift shop which had a lot of neat stuff. Here is one display.
We had a great time, it was neat to see so many bluebonnets. We have seen them on the side of the road a lot but then the mowers come. We did find this one picture kind of funny. They had gardens of flowers and herbs they were planting in neat rows for sale and for research. Look at the neat rows and then all the wildflowers that are encroaching on the area, they are wild after all :-)
We'll end with a display out front that reflected a lot of the things we see in Arizona. Maybe we are a little homesick for Arizona.
Till next time,
