Spring Comes to the Rio Grande Valley of Deep South Texas

Several months ago, a friend challenged me to chose one location and take a photo once each week at that same location to show the arrival of Spring.   I chose a location just north of Elsa, Texas, on Spur 1925.   This location is about 18-20 miles north of the border with Mexico and the Rio Grande River.

While there are more blooms on April 19 than on April 12, a careful examination of the April 19 photo reveals that some of the blooms are already past their peak.  Summer is coming and Spring's beauty will fade.   But, oh, how Spring's beauty has excited us!
