We are back at Goose Island near Rockport, TX for about a week before we start our trek toward home. My friend, Julie had mentioned in an e-mail to me about the pictures she took of wildflowers at the local cemetery here. Then another friend, Helen had posted some pictures of them on her blog, so I just had to go see for myself and take my own pictures. We were headed out for Pizza with Wayne and Julie, so we all decided to stop there on the way.
Every year during the wildflower season, the cemetery here doesn't get mowed until the flowers are gone. People come from all over to see the spectacular site. It is so beautiful as the whole place is just covered with flowers and the headstones are just peaking through.
Of course, the blue bonnets are also in bloom (blue bonnets are the state flower). We saw lots of pretty wildflowers on the highways as well on our way here from San Angelo. As most of you know, Lady Bird Johnson was largely responsible for all the beautiful wildflowers grown on medians and along highways throughout our country.
