Wildseed Farms

If you like wildflowers and gardening, then you have to stop in at Wildseed Farms on US 290 about 6 or 7 miles east of Fredericksburg. There are 200 acres of wildflowers here, and different flowers appear at different times of the year.

When you tire of wandering the grounds admiring the color of the wildflowers, then stroll through the Market Center, where you can find other plants, seeds, pots, and just about any other item appropriate for a garden. If you get tired, then stop in at the Brewbonnet Biergarten for snacks, ice cream, sandwiches, and other refreshments, including beer and wine.

But the best thing about the Wildseed Farms is outside. Below are some of the pictures I took while there.

  1. These pictures are beautiful! I'm trying to contact you in response to your January blog about the SA State Park and Loyd Bell (my Dad). He would also like to meet with you and it sounds as if you have a lot of common interests. Please email me at gbharding@verizon.net and Dad will contact you from there. Thanks, Gayle Bell Harding
