Spring is upon us and the weather is setting the mood for warm days and cool nights.  Rain has been abundant this fall and winter.  Mother Nature is helping to create a beautiful Texas Hill Country Spring.  The Emily Ann Theater & Garden will be hosting the 14th annual Butterfly Festival April 21st.  Sure to be a beautiful day with wonderful activities you will enjoy experiencing the release of over 3,000 butterflies to the wild.  Celebrate Earth Day with guided nature walks by the Hays County Master Naturalists, live music, carnival games, concessions, and Commemorative Air Force flyover.  The best news, the festival is FREE! (Donations are accepted and appreciated). 

 

Wildflower Center Tower and Arch

Lady Bird Johnson Wild Flower Center

Now we all know the most beautiful time of year in Texas is wild flower season!  Lady Bird Johnson was a pioneer in establishing and maintaining the beautiful sights of Central Texas.  Lady Bird Wild Flower Center was created in 1982 to help preserve and restore the beauty and biological richness of North America.  Texas jumped on board and the program has been a success ever since.  You can visit the WFC any time of year, but we suggest the Spring to truly appreciate the natural beauty.  (Below is the hours and days of operation)

 

 

Lazy Susans

Interested in creating your own back yard meadow with beautiful wildflowers?  Then you must visit Wildseed Farms.  Acres of wildflowers and seed production makes this location the largest working flower farm in the nation.  Crop production will be in various stages of growth during any visit ~ some fields in bloom, some freshly planted, and some may be ready for harvest.  You will enjoy the views and gain knowledge of local natural plants that will thrive in your personal haven you create.  The Country Store is open for purchase or pick up the free mail order catalog and have purchases delivered right to your door!
