Spring Bounty

Spring Bounty - Texas Wildflowers by Gary Regner

Phlox, groundsel, pepper grass, bluebonnets, and prickly poppies blanket a field in south Texas during spring.

When rain is plentiful in fall and winter, spring in Texas can bring a bounty of assorted wildflowers to the countryside.  In 2010, abundant rainfall created a particularly colorful spring display in Atascosa County south of San Antonio. This image was taken on April 3. It is likely that this year wildflowers will appear a bit later due to the recent cold spell that has brought ice and colder than average temperatures to much of Texas.
