Texas Wildflowers

By Mark D. Roberts | Saturday, October 18, 2008

Before I moved to Texas, I never associated this state with wildflowers. But now, after a year living in Texas, wildflowers are right at the top of my list when it comes to what I associate with my new state.

The photo above shows some yellow flowers along Interstate 10 on my drive to work. I’m pretty sure they’re Maximillian Sunflowers.  They’re everwhere this time of year. In the photo below, you can see a few of these flowers along the right side of the road. The bike rider is my son, as we were on a recent ride not too far from home.

Here’s a close up of the flowers as the blow in the autumn Texas wind.

    Rev. Roberts, Thanks again for posting new photos of the Texas flowers & countryside-wow what memories & also my brother & I rode bicycles in Texas eons ago & loved it!! Texas is where I learned to ride a bike without training wheels Ha I guess that’s pretty good at 5 years of age. The happiest memory I have of your Irvine church was when your son was so helpful & kind before the start of services What a bright Light!! Tell him people noticed-his kindness & respectful attitudes & behavior. Very impressive Well enough of the past Here’s wishing your family lots of happy times in Texas Thanxs Again J & family


Thanks for your willingness to make a comment. Note: I do not moderate comments before they are posted, though they are automatically screened for profanities, spam, etc., and sometimes the screening program holds comments for moderation even though they're not offensive. I encourage open dialogue and serious disagreement, and am always willing to learn from my mistakes. I will not delete comments unless they are extraordinarily rude or irrelevant to the topic at hand. You do need to login in order to make a comment, because this cuts down on spam. You are free to use a nickname if you wish. Finally, I will eventually read all comments, but I don't have the time to respond to them on a consistent basis because I've got a few other demands on my time, like my "day job," my family, sleep, etc.
