My Favorite Place in Texas

I like to say that although I wasn't born in Texas, I got here as fast as I could. Truthfully, the only reason I was born elsewhere was because my father was in the Air Force. He and my mother were born and raised here, so Texas has always been home (although I claim Colorado as well -- shoot, it's just too pretty not to!).

So I've been to all parts of Texas, and they are as different as night and day. Texas is the only state I know of that has fertile river valleys, coastline, desert mountains, rolling hills, huge towering forests, high plains, big cities, quaint towns, and everything in between. I love the coast, especially Mustang Island and North Padre Island. I also love the forests of East Texas. But my number one favorite place in Texas is anywhere you find wildflowers.

How can you not love the bluebonnets that greet us each Spring!

Love the wildflowers. :) It's my first spring here...people say the wildflowers aren't their boldest this year, but even so they are beautiful.
