Summer Heat Nurtures Wild Flowers

Though summer in Texas is not at all a good season, it still has a few pockets of beauty of pleasure. For one thing the vast lakes in the area don't dry up. Water levels diminish but that is what happens across the world, there is still enough water to dip into and cool off. Then there are the wild flowers that start blooming all over the state in the parks, by roadsides, along highways, meadows, farms, etc. The flowers add beauty to the otherwise hostile summer.

The flowers are definitely not enough to motivate most of us to want the summer to prolong. I am definitely looking forward to the fall when for a few months we will all enjoy great sunshine and mildly warm weather. The season to enjoy the outdoors and particularly my newest hobby of motorcycling. Hopefully fall is here soon and winter will not be as severe as summer has been for the past two years.

I must say I am looking forward to long motorcycle rides during the milder months of this year and in the future.
