PHOTO ESSAY: Texas spring

Contributing photographer Michael Kaynard spent several recent days on the highways and byways of Texas, sending us a host of colorful photos of the Lone Star State’s spring.  Enjoy.

    These are beautiful photos, and I can tell Michael Kaynard enjoyed all the beauty he found in Texas. I especially enjoyed the Bluebonnet photos. I am probably not the first person to remark that the flowers in the 5th photograph are not Bluebonnets–I’m not sure what they are, but probably some sort of Salvia.
    I grew up in Dallas and in school learned the song “Have You Ever Been to Texas in the Spring?”
    The photos made me think of that song!
    Thanks for sharing!
