The Texas Bluebonnets Are In Full Bloom!

One of my favorite things about Spring is having our beautiful Texas Bluebonnets in full bloom once again.  We have had ample rain fall for Spring so far, these little flowers are coming up strong and fields of brilliant blue color are everywhere.  They do not last for long, though, so we also have a number of cars pulled over at hillsides with busy photo enthusiasts taking family photos amidst the blooms.

The Texas Bluebonnet is an annual native to Texas, and our State Flower.  It thrives in full sunlight in gravelly, well-drained soil.  These factors are why it is most commonly seen on hillsides along roadways or pastures that are uncultivated.  They are easy to grow from seed with these factors taken into account when planting.  So you can have your own Bluebonnet garden to enjoy each and every year.
