This lantana around a fence post is a sample of the plentiful wild flowers that grow on the property. The lantana blooms mostly during the spring and summer, but some vegetation is always in bloom in the area. Kenedy County is renowned throughout South Texas for its abundance of gorgeous wild flowers.

This yucca (commonly called "Spanish Dagger") is nestled among some sable (or fan) palms. The yucca blooms for about two weeks and marks the transition from winter to spring in the Southwest.
