Fresh Air at Tandy Hills
Castilleja purpurea, purple paintbrush
On Good Friday we drove up to Ft. Worth for the Easter weekend. We got up early and made good time, stopping just twice to change and feed Forest. Always in a Tex-Mex mood when I hit the DFW area (because, seriously, Houston doesn’t compare to Tex-Mex in DFW) we went to Mexican Inn on East Lancaster in Ft. Worth, my parent’s old stomping grounds growing up. It was only a hop and skip across the road to Tandy Hills and I wanted to scope out the wildflowers. Unfortunately we were a few weeks early for a peak wildflower bloom there, but we did see a few purple paintbrushes and other small wildflowers on the prairie there. Our hike was short lived as Zoe opted for returning to the car not long after we arrived. It was a nice breath of fresh air, though, and a stretch of our legs as we had spent so much time in the car that morning.
