This cheerful red flower in a sea of bluebonnets reminded me of the book Jonathan Livingston Seagull. The book was popular when I was about 10 years old. I remember absorbing a message from the book of being yourself and not conforming. I also liked going to the beach and watching the gulls fly, imagining one of them to be Jonathan.
A few days ago my husband and I drove the Willow City Loop between Fredericksburg and Llano in the Texas Hill Country. The multi-colored wildflowers, meandering creek and rocky hills were beautiful.
