I can count. But at the end of seven days, I couldn't resist the eighth flower. You can find those beauties by clicking here and scrolling down.
This year, in our Texas Hill Country and the prairies to the south and rolling hills heading north, the roadsides and fields are spangled with wildflowers; an exuberant celebration of rain after drought.
I don't leave the garage without my camera...who knows what miracle will have bloomed since yesterday and might be gone tomorrow?
And for the next however long, I'll occasionally put up roadside views for you to enjoy too. Because we all deserve to celebrate life.
