Chasing Windmills and Wildflowers in South Texas

My past week has been filled with family and friends in Louisiana and Texas. While in Texas I got the notion to gather a collection of photos of the old windmills that are out there. Most of these are in Goliad county near Goliad, TX but a few are from other counties in the vicinity. The wildflowers are ones that caught my eye while we were out chasing windmills.

I’ll be turning this into a Kindle picture book eventually, and maybe make a calendar, but in the meantime, here’s the photos I have so far. There is one other wooden windmill that we saw on the way home but I haven’t gotten it downloaded yet. I’d like to go back and collect all the painted windmills I’ve heard about, too. People paint the blades to look like sunflowers or other flowers.
