This concludes my Texas Bluebonnet Series. It has been my most extensive series ever (starting on June 4 with thirteen posts) and I hope you have enjoyed the extensive photos of bluebonnets in the Texas Hill Country.
On the road again.
Our trip would not have been complete without some amazing Texas BBQ from The Spread Pit Barbecue in Brady, Texas.
Only in Texas have we ever found jalapeño stuffed quail wrapped with bacon and dipped in butter. Delicious!
On the last stretch of the trip, the first few photos were taken outside of Austin.
Then, we enjoyed some amazing scenery with rock formations and wildflowers driving along the Colorado River and Inks Lake.
Scenic view of Perissos Vineyard.
We love visiting and remembering The Alamo (The Shrine Of Texas Liberty) while in San Antonio.
There were hundreds of people walking around. I can’t believe I captured this photo without anyone in it and stood there for quite a while to do so!
Jim and Camelia in the gardens of The Alamo.

This monument reads:”From the fire that burned their bodies, rose the external spirit of sublime heroic sacrifice, which gave birth to an empire state.”
Beautiful blooms outside of The Alamo.
You cannot imagine how tall and wide this cactus was. It was taller than us! It covered a lot of ground.
The American flag proudly flying at The Alamo.
On the road home, we did not get to spend as much time as I would have liked in San Antonio but had to take a stroll on the Riverwalk. What a fun and amazing place!
Check out the tree roots.
Amazing tile work.
I saved the best wildflower photos for last! Wildseed Farms in Fredericksburg, Texas is the largest working wildseed farm in the world. You have to see it to believe it. Some pictures are worth a thousand words. I hope you enjoy these!
The ranch with fenceposts sporting cowboy and cowgirl boots as far as the eye could see was our absolute favorite place on Willow City Loop in Fredericksburg! It seemed like there were boots for a mile but there must have been boots for at least half of a mile.
Special thanks to this rancher for making our day an extreme Texas experience!
