Spring Flowers

Texas is known for the fields of bluebonnets that pop up each spring and this year has been a particularly good year for them and the other wildflowers, so I am not posting any pictures of them because of the thousands of others who are.

I am not certain what the yellow flowers are exactly, but they are common in fields and even into woodlands. They attract all kinds of insects and looking closely on can see more than just butterflies on them.

Some of the trees, too, produce exquisite flowes. These almost orchid flowers stand out in the wooded areas. Unfortunately we do not have many native trees that produce beautiful flowers, so I am always attracted to the wild flowering trees I come across.
