Fun with a good cause describes the Hill Country Wine & Music Festival, held at Wildseed Farms April 26-28, all proceeds went to the Texas Center for Wine and Culinary Arts.  Ken Maxwell, festival chairman, spoke with me about the expansion of this year’s festival to three days. Attendance increased by 50% and fun was off the charts. Great country music by groups like The Almost Patsy Cline Band (my favorite), good food and wine tasting to rival that West Coast valley whose name I won’t mention!

The Wildseed Farm is a year-round destination stop, not just a springtime oooo and aaaawww place. John R. Thomas, owner, recommends allotting about 4 hours to browse the gift shops, select new plants for your garden and buy your favorite wildflower seeds. The butterfly garden is a “must see”. Then, wonder along the paths, take pictures and bathe in the beauty of Mother Nature.

Come to the Texas Hill Country where people are glad to see you and you’ll hate to leave.
