The Bluebonnets Are In Full Bloom Before The First Day of 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 pre-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.

Good morning Lisa.  Having lived in Texas for a couple of decades I did enjoy those Bluebonnets when they came out of hiding.

Good Morning Lisa - that is a beautiful picture and a sure sign of spring in the great state of Texas.

Thanks for the reminder. I remember driving into Houston to see my sister and the bluebonnets were perfectly lovely.

Good morning Lisa. Somehow I see Texas as flat without hills in most areas. Love the bluebonnets! Spring has not sprung yet here in Chicago! Enjoy your day!

Nice photo, Lisa Von Domek and I will bet you that the bees are busy at work in that field.

The fields full of blue bonnets in Texas, the fields full of tulips in Holland... few things in life are quite as much as a feast for the eyes, Lisa. I've been lucky enough to see both!

Oh what a beautiful picture of all those Bluebonnets. Too bad they only stay around for a short time. I bet they do keep the photo enthusiasts busy.
