“I have been fortunate to spend my entire life in Texas. Each year as winter begins to wind down, one of the things I look forward to most about spring is the appearance of Texas wildflowers that cover the countryside. Along the highways, rural country roads and adjacent fields, and even in some neighborhood yards, paint brushes can be seen first and are soon joined by bluebonnets and a mixture of other blooms of reds, golden yellows, pinks, and purples.” – Nolan Ryan, Hall of Fame Pitcher
This beautiful limited-edition photographic print of Texas wildflowers was taken by photographer Timothy Wolcott and signed by Baseball Hall of Fame pitcher Nolan Ryan. This print is part of the Washington on the Brazos Association’s For the Love of Texas project. For this project, the Association asked notable Texans to select their favorite photo, autograph it, and describe what they love most about Texas.
