Tuesday I made another round trip to Cresson, TX. Usually, I am watching for birds the entire way. Although I did see some birds, I have to admit to being distracted by the profusion of wildflowers. This time of year is my favorite (well, right there with the fall.) The sides of the roads and the fields were covered with wildflowers.

Two weeks ago, most of the stock tanks were nearly empty; this time almost all were full to overflowing. Also, the fields burnt by wildfires last month are once again green (although there are a lot of burned trees still very obvious.) It is amazing what a couple of days of rain can do. I am going to enjoy it before the heat burns everything to a crisp in another month or so.

Good birding!
