Random images of Texas springtime

Dry conditions that have persisted for going onto four years across much of the Southwest could convince folks that they will see nothing but dust and brown vegetation as they drive the back roads of the Texas Plains.

Oh, you’ll see plenty of  dried up stock tanks, scraggly winter wheat, blowing dust and streams with no more than trickles to indicate that water does occasionally flow through the creek and riverbeds.

But if you slow down a bit, you’ll also notice an occasional spot of color, a patch of red or a sprig of blue poking through the sun-parched landscape and scattered around the abandoned homesteads, the bare-ground fields yet to be planted and along fencerows and ditch banks. I was pleasantly surprised on a recent trip through the Texas Rolling Plains to find these examples of the diverse scenery of a Texas spring.
