Picking Wildflowers, One I Didn't Publish From Long Ago

I am so lucky, Sunday as I was driving to church down the winding little road to Bellville, I realized how blessed I am, and how much I love where  I live.  I passed the cows, then the long horn cows, and when I passed the buffalo, I was certain I was in Texas.  There are so many old barns and old houses in Austin County, and my shutterbug goes off every time I pass them.  Then there are the wild flowers, on the way home I took dozens of pictures.  Some of them turned out beautiful, so I thought I would share some with you.

First, I loves these white cows in the pond cooling off, it gets so hot in Texas!

These are beautiful and have beautiful delicate flowers. They have the see through type petals.  If you even get close to their thread size long thorns, they get you.  They are tipped with poison as well, and they burn like fire, or fire ant bites! 

So never ever try 
to pick these!
