Exploring Wildseed Farms In Fredericksburg, Texas





Flowers. I love them. It's another reason why I love Spring: flowers pop up everywhere. I suppose I appreciate them because I have a black thumb and can't grow any on my own. I mean, I suppose I could try again, but the results probably wouldn't be good.


I knew I'd love Wildseed Farms in Fredericksburg, Texas. I went with my Mom and daughter. They have over 200 acres of wildflower farms. They are the largest working flower farm in the WORLD. It's FREE to visit and has walking trails open from 930-530, 7 days a week.





It was raining when we went, which is probably why it wasn't so busy, so yes, even if it's wet, they are open.



It's so peaceful and calming inside:



There's also a Butterfly Garden, but because it was raining, we didn't see any. We'll have to go again and see if we can spot some:



And of course, they have a bunch of flowers growing.


My daughter was excited about the poppies. There were popping up all over.  She loves to take photos with her phone.




She also loves to pose with the poppies:




There are tons of photo opportunities. You can get close to the flowers, but please take care not to trample them. We found a safe spot.






Since there weren't a lot of people around, my daughter was running down the paths in excitement. She truly loves being in nature. Me? Well, I enjoy it, but I also love being indoors. She could probably survive on Naked & Afraid while I would tap out after day 1 when I couldn't have my Diet Coke.



Natalie would also love to camp, but her mother is more about glamping. I don't like to be where the bugs are for too long.



The poppies truly were gorgeous, and there's even more of them now. So if you've been wanting to make a visit to Wildseed Farms, go!



Oh, and Natalie picked out this shirt from Target to wear at Wildseed Farms.






I loved this:




Oh and yes, if you want to buy plants, you can. There's an area to do that. You can also buy pretty things for your garden.







There's also a store inside with lots of goodies. Plus you can buy seeds from your favorite flowers. As I mentioned before, I have a black thumb, so we did not. But I admired the bluebonnet stuff.



They also have a Brewbonnet Biergarten where you can get beer, snack, and ice cream. We didn't go in here, but next time, for sure. They have peach ice cream that I need to try.



Do you love looking at flowers? Can you grow them, or do you have a black thumb like I do?

  13. What a beautiful place to spend an afternoon. The poppies are absolutely gorgeous and I could wander around there all day. It's too bad the weather didn't cooperate and you didn't have a chance to see the butterflies. I know where I'm going next weekend!

  22. These are great pictures. I think this would be a great place to visit; it would be a fun way to bring in Spring weather (and I'm with you on the glamping!).

  23. Totally with you. Gardens in the Spring is for me the great way to connect with nature. The smell just beckons and the colors are vibrant. What a great way to get in touch with nature.
