"Sleep in a garden..." Wake up to the smell of rosemary, thyme, and other fresh scents when you stay in one of the newly opened Sunday Houses at Fredericksburg Herb Farm, 830/997-8615. The cozy cottages are styled like the old-time “Sunday Houses” built by German farmers for weekend stays when they came to town for church and shopping.
Take a day trip from Houston to the Texas Hill Country... and visit one of the gorgeous lavender farms around Fredericksburg. You can get married at sunset, overlooking the lavender fields... or just spend the night at one of the area Bed and Breakfast Inns.--OH MAN!!!!!
Bluebonnets generally begin blooming in mid-March and continue into April when they’re joined by other later blooming varieties of native flowers. Advice for finding the most beautiful blooms: “Drop in at small-town cafes and ask locals. They know the country better than anyone else.” Or, call the Texas Department of Transportation Wildflower Hotline, 800/452-9292.
