Thanks for all the great information.
To answer you question on wild flowers in our San Antonio area. The best drive in the spring seems to be going west up towards Kerrville and Fredericksburg. However the Drive South towards the coast is always nice too.
Hope that answers your questions and thanks again for all your info
