It's no secret to anybody that knows me. I love to travel in the state of Texas. Give me a good road trip any day of the week. Crank up the tunes and away I go. It could be traveling up to the Panhandle or down to the coast. There's something about the open road and believe me with a state as big as Texas, there's plenty to see.

There's a particular stretch I traveled not too long ago. Summer was in full bloom and so were the wildflowers. Fields and fields of different varieties. Most I didn't even recognize. It really is amazingly beautiful once you stop and take it in. It got me thinking about how many kinds of wildflowers grow in this great state. Turns out, according to Texas Highways there are plenty. Some are just too unique and beautiful not to share. Keep looking to treat your eyes to some of nature's handiwork.
