Gorgeous Texas Wildflowers

No matter where you live, if you are happy and like it there where you are, you will appreciate every little thing you see around you. And the more appreciative you are, the happier you get.

I grew up in a city island until I reached the age of 21 where going to the beach is not a problem for we are surrounded by beautiful beaches in Lapu-lapu. We can smell that fresh ocean breeze anytime we want.

When I moved here in Texas to be with my husband and build a family, I could no longer smell that ocean breeze for we are 6 hours drive away from the beach. But despite of that, I still feel fortunate. Albeit, we don’t live near the beach yet we have these super gorgeous Texas wildflowers with vibrant colors. These photos were taken in early Spring 2015 in Benbrook.

You tell me just by looking the photos below if you don’t fall in love with them? I don’t know what they are called but the last one in blue is called the bluebonnets which is the Texas national flower. Picking them is illegal so you just gotta enjoy or admire their beauty ¬†through your eyes and not with your hands.

Gladly, we can see beautiful wildflowers just a few miles drive from where we live. It is located adjacent to Benbrook lake and has a picnic area where you can enjoy your food, the pleasant temperature and at the same time gazing at the beauty of nature laid before your eyes.
