Monday Musings - Now Spring in Texas is Really Here!
Yesterday, while driving home from church, I caught my first glimpse of this year's bluebonnets! It was just a small patch along the highway but it was so exciting to see them!
Before moving to Texas seventeen years ago, I had never heard of or seen these beautiful wildflowers. The first time I saw a whole field of them it literally took my breath away! The color is so vibrant and sometimes stretches over an acre or more of an open field.
Every child in this state has at one time or another had their picture taken in a big patch of bluebonnets and many a mantel boasts a large, hand-painted canvas of this native flower.
Nothing says Texas like the bluebonnet!
