Nine-year-old Briana Miller leaned forward to study a patch of Texas blue stars, a purplish-blue native wildflower.
Sniffing a blossom, Miller inhaled and smiled.
“I’m a nature girl,” said Miller, of Burleson. “I like flowers and bugs and being outside. You can’t keep me inside.”
Miller was right at home Saturday at Prairie Fest at Tandy Hills Natural Area, a 160-acre indigenous prairie that boasts a diverse collection of native wildflowers. Just five minutes from downtown, Tandy features rolling hills, hiking trails and 548 species of native wildflowers.
