Wildflowers – or 10 years after

When my wife and I got married 10 years ago we had high hopes.  High hopes of taking stunning pictures in the wildflowers.  The little white church surrounded by thick carpets of wildflowers – all while enjoying a beautiful spring day with 70F weather with no humidity.  That was the plan.

We did get the beautiful little church, I got a beautiful wife, however, the wildflowers decided to take some time off in 2000 and the weather was a crushing 85F with no A/C in that little church.  There came a point when I simply gave up on wiping the sweat out of my face – what’s the use.  We were surrounded by green fields and the old folks kept saying that we should have had wildflowers and how beautiful it could have been – yes they even wished us well 🙂

Fast forward 10 years.  After living in Orlando for some time we moved to Texas and over the last couple of years started to appreciate the wildflowers again.  Taking pictures of our growing family is always extra special when the flowers are in bloom.

This year around Killeen the wildflowers are only marginal with the occasional thick patches of blue bonnets mocking us from the side of the busy interstate.  That is certainly no place to have the family run around to make memories.  However, 2 hours south near Seguin (think of little white church) the fields were absolutely THICK with wildflowers this year.

Here are the pictures to prove it (with the growing family):

Here are the two kids who don’t need to sit for the pictures 🙂

Enjoy.
