A Hill Country wildflower meadow
Bluebonnets (Lupinus texensis), bladderpods (genus Lesquerella), prickly pear cactus (Opuntia engelmannii).
Location: Texas Park Road 4 near Inks Lake in Burnet County. This picture goes back to April 1, but I was in the same area again on April 11 and I can confirm that I still saw plenty of fields and roadsides as dense with flowers as the meadow shown here.
