New Ulm Flowers and Hummingbirds

Birdhouse in Garden Photo, New Ulm, Texas

Although springtime is best for flowers in the New Ulm area (when the Texas bluebonnets are in full bloom), other types of flowers can be seen year-round, like those in the photos below. There also are a lot of hummingbirds in the area.

Every season has its own type of flowering plant in the New Ulm area. The climat is such that flowering plants and vegetables grow 9 to 10 months of the year. The prettiest flowers grow in the spring, as you''d expect, but I remember viewing and photographing flowering plants as late as November when I was in high school.

I remember my first roll of color film, taking a picture in color of a rose in the late 1950s. I still have that photo today somewhere, and I think it hooked me on photography.
