Wildflowers are still blooming in the Highland Lakes Area

The bluebonnets are long gone but there are still plenty of wildflowers in the Texas Hill Country to enjoy. There are still fields of several types of beautiful yellow flowers. This year there are far more yellow flowers of several types than there were bluebonnets and Texas paint brush. Last year the wildflowers were pretty up to mid July in the Highland Lakes area.

It was a below average year for the bluebonnets this year, but the yellow flowers seem to be as good as ever.

If you get out of your car and closely explore the roadside, you can see very pretty smaller flowers that you would miss by just driving by. Be sure to bring your camera.

On the wildflower page of the Highland Lakes Web page there are photos of over 45 types of wildflowers that were taken in the Highland Lakes area the past couple of years.

If you have wildflower photos you would like to share, you can contact the Highland Lakes Web Page at

I really enjoyed your wild flower pictures. I didn't know that there were so many kinds of flowers.
