IH-10 and 783; Kerrville, TX

Lots of yellow flowers on Interstate 10 west of Kerrville (not sure if labeled correctly). Stopped at the picnic area off interstate, about halfway to Mountain Home, for first two pictures. Head north on 783, past James Avery, to the Ridge Marketplace, which has a nursery, outdoor gardens, and a bakery/restaurant. A hidden gem of the hill country that we happened to discover. The food was excellent, and I highly recommend the sauteed spinach. If I ate spinach like that growing up, I would have not hated it all my life!

290 and 281

The first image with the butterfly was taken outside Blanco State Park, just before state parks reopened. Then, head north to Johnson City, where this field is in the center of the 281 and 290 intersection. Kids need to get out more? Just north of Johnson City is the Exotic Resort Zoo, which has changed its business model to a drive-thru safari, but check their website for ticket info.

HWY 16 north of Fredericksburg

Happy Easter! Resurrection Church has some beautiful flowers. Too bad churches are closed for Corona Virus on Easter, but I'm sure they will welcome a donation! Also, you can head north to Llano to view Llano Earth Arts Fest (LEAF) at the city park by the Llano River. Plus, found these flowers north of Llano in Pontotoc, TX. Good way to escape the Corona Virus cabin fever!

Pedernales Falls State Park

Enjoy bluebonnets around Pedernales Falls State Park. Also highly recommend the nice bird blinds.

Found this house around Fisher, Texas. Only a few more payments and it's ours!

Around San Antonio, flowers all over in parts of town: Oak Hills area. Laureate and Research, just to name a few.

Spring Branch, TX (281 and 311)

Plenty of flowers going up 281 from San Antonio. Found this flower patch in the median of 281 and 311, north side of Spring Branch. You can see people stopping and taking lots of pictures here. There's also a cafe and shops for those who prefer the indoors.

Lot next to Nelson City Dance Hall. I-10 West past Boerne. Waring-Welfare Rd. and Green Cedars Rd., just past PoPo Restaurant.
