    My first reaction was that they don’t look anything like the paintbrushes I’m used to seeing … until I consulted with Mr Google. I was thinking of Devil’s Paintbrushes – which are orangey-red – rather than your pretty purple Indian Paintbrushes.

    They look beautiful – I’m guessing a bumblebee magnet 🙂

      When I first moved to Texas I was told they were Indian paintbrushes. When I decided to post them I also Googled (always avoid public embarrassment!) I kept seeing orange paintbrushes. Panic!! So I googled “pink Indian paintbrushes ” and learned my information was correct…..whew! I was afraid of having to find another “I” word!!

        We are out in west Texas this weekend. Not nearly as many wildflowers 😦

        Have you ever gone to Enis to see the bluebonnets ?
        It is beautiful!!

        I will check it out. We went to Friz a couple of times, north 281 was wow last spring. LBJ Wildflower Center is great, but not many flowers last year due to the drought. I think this year is going to be beautiful.

    How pretty! I don’t remember seeing them in this color before. Like above, the orange-red ones were what I’d seen as I traveled over Texas via blogs. 😉
