An Award & Tagged

I thought I would share a few of my favorite pictures from one of my very favorite places. I took these at the Wildseed Wildflower Farm outside of Fredricksburg, Texas. I thought these would cause you to look forward to spring coming again soon.



I just love everything about God's Creation. Butterflies & flowers are some of my favorite beautiful things. They never cease to amaze me & I never tire of looking at them.



One of my favorite things about the Wildflower Farm is that no matter when you visit there are always flowers blooming in the fields. These pictures were taken inside the special butterfly exhibit which is well worth the small charge.



I just got home from a trip to Phoenix to discover I was honored again with this award by my friend Patti over at Delighted Heart and I was tagged by my friend Sandi over at: Rose Chintz Cottage. In the interest of time I decided to combine the two. To accept the award, I must mention who I received the award from and link back to her. Then I am to write the following into my post:"This blog invests and believes the PROXIMITY- nearness in space, time and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly written text into the body of their award."

Thanks for tagging me. I will get on that very quickly!!

I enjoyed your pics of the Wildflower Seed Farm. My parents both live very near there but I've never visited. Hoping to do that this spring or summer. I love Fredricksburg. :)
