Wildseed Farms

We visited the Texas wildflower seed farm just outside Fredericksburg. We wanted to get pics of the kids in the flowers and they have beautiful fields. I called ahead to make sure that we could take a stroller on the pathways. They told me that it was handicap accessible. I will warn you that it is gravel paths so rolling the stroller, and I assume walker or wheelchair, can be a little challenging. But it is free admittance and it is seriously gorgeous. They raise wildflowers native to Texas and then harvest the seeds for selling. You can purchase seeds, plants, bulbs, etc. Of course there is an enormous gift shop for pottery and other garden treasures. I was surprised, however, to see the live band and restaurant. It was really very pleasant. There is one section where you can walk a path through the flowers to take pictures. I would recommend calling ahead if you are going specifically for that. We took my in-laws back for a visit when they were here and they had recently harvested that field to plant something else. But it was still worth the visit because we visited fields that we never took the time to go through since we spent all our time before taking pictures in the one field.
