Mary Moore Searight Park

Day 02 – Mary Moore Searight Park, Flowers and Vegetation, March 23, 2022 - X

Spring came late to the Texas Hill Country this year. As we hiked along the pathways under the live oak and cedar trees, we looked for wildflowers but they were few and far between.

The Wildflower Meadow, a favorite stop for park visitors was still dormant after another chilly winter in Austin. We were able to find several Texas Bluebonnets, the Texas state flower. Also just beginning to bloom were the wild Mexican plum trees.

Peeking out of the brown grasses was a beautiful yellow Low Bladderpod. We also were able to find prickly pear cactus, Mexican blue fan palms, and winterberry bushes.

One can only imagine the rainbow of colors that will be welcoming park visitors soon.
