|The photos on this page are from Texas Hill Country, a region in the central/southern area
of Texas. It's known for its beautiful and abundant wildflowers, especially in spring,
when the hills come alive with the vibrant colors of bluebells, buttercups, painted daisies
and many, many other varieties. It's home to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center.

-- Evelyn Underhill
|Beauty is whatever gives joy. -- Edna St. Vincent Millay
|People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with
joy the whole time to have the things about us. -- Iris Murdoch
|Most things possess their own unique kind of beauty, but not everyone sees it.
|There's something healing in the assurance that dawn comes after night,
and spring comes after winter. -- Rachel Carson
|Stop along the road and smell the flowers.

|Eventually, every gardener becomes a philosopher. -- Barbara Borland

|In winter, each flower, each stone,
Each stick, each leaf,
Speaks to me of the old time grief.
But when I walk this way in spring,
They laugh, and I laugh,
They sing, and I sing.
-- Mary Elizabeth Mahnkey
