To track down the wildflowers, heading west from Houston on I-10 is a good place to start. Now there’s not a whole lot to see between Houston and San Antonio unless you get off the freeway and explore those back roads that give you a glimpse of what most of Texas really is.
Much of small town Texas has fewer than 5,000 folks, and some of those towns, especially what used to be the business area, have seen their better days.
No matter how shabby a place appears, there always seems to be a sweet church rising to meet the blue Texas sky.
Here and there are some surprisingly cute places like this one serving a delicious lunch
and having a garden shop and nursery chock full of tempting things.
Bar-B-Que is a favorite food in these small towns and if that’s what you have a hankering for, you’ll be in luck. Don’t worry if you don’t have a pickup, you’re still welcome
and can have a bite of lunch with the good ole boys!
There was a time when all the wide open spaces were cattle ranches,
but these days there’s no telling what kind of four legged critter is being raised.
Yessir, I like exploring these back roads and sometimes Pa and I find us a porch and just sit and rock and take it all in!
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
