Wildflowers & Cactus

Where else on Earth can you find a field of beautiful wildflowers growing right next to a Prickly-Pear cactus? That’s Texas folks. A state of wondrous beauty and striking contrasts.

You can walk all afternoon through a field like this and turn a corner to find this waiting in the shadows. As I like to tell folks during my workshop, the Texas Hill Country is a region of distinct character, as diverse as the folks that settled here and as beautiful as any place you’ll ever visit.
