“All of western Texas was a real frontier then, and for one who loved nature
and God’s own creation, it was a paradise on earth. The hills and valleys were
teeming with deer and turkeys, thousands of buffalo and antelope were on the
plains, and the streams all over Texas were full of fish. Bear caves and bee
trees abounded. In the springtime one could travel for hundreds of miles on a
bed of flowers.”
James Gillett, Six Years with the Texas Rangers, 1875-1881
Texas wildflowers are original designs from wildflowers photographed in their natural Texas Hill Country settings. Long-life glossy and fine art papers ensure years of lasting beauty. David Coppin photographs, designs and prints all images.
Wildflower Bouquets are composed of some of Texas' most beautiful wildflowers, as well as some not so familiar.
Texas bluebonnet blooms from April to May in splashes of blue which appear as pools of water at a distance.
Indian paintbrush, a red-orange bloom, blankets many acres from March to May.
Another native familiar in appearance, although maybe not by name, is the coreopsis, a yellow flower with a red-brown center. In a good year, masses of coreopsis will bloom from May to June.
The large bluish-purple bluebell gentian is not a cultivar in the wild, but a beautiful wildflower that blooms from June to August.
An east Texas native, purple coneflower is a reddish-purple daisy-like perennial that blooms May to September.
Another daisy-like flower, Indian blanket, covers meadows from May to June with red, yellow-tipped flowers. This abundant wildflower is the state flower of Oklahoma.
All wildflowers were photographed in their natural settings and digitally placed into a bouquet of lasting beauty.
