Texas Bluebonnets - One Of My Favorite Things About Spring

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.

Lisa Von Domek I observed lots of the Texas Bluebonnets on my recent trek across your huge state. Lots of other wildflowers were seen, as well. Thought about stopping for some photos, but time was against me.

Good morning Lisa, 

They are beautiful this time of year and have only seen them one time.

Make yourself an astonishing day.

Lisa, So pretty. That view is definitely a reason to stop the car and take some photos.

Lisa- you are making me miss my birthplace... Houston, TX.  Seeing a field of bluebonnets (and even a few Indian Paintbrushes thrown in) gives me a certain peace.  And like every good Texan, I have a picture of me as a little girl right in the middle of the bluebonnets.

Just beautiful Lisa, very pleasing to the eye.  Have a wonderful Sunday.

Hi Lisa - that field of Bluebonnets is a Texas trademark like the Cherry Blossems in Washington.

Hi Lisa Von Domek ,  I like you photo.  It looks like a blue quilt spread over the hillside.

Lisa with a beautiful view like that I would be one of the cars pulled over to take pictures.

I am hearing a lot about these Bluebonnets this week, and after seeing your photo I can see why they are so popular.
