Wildflower Wednesday: Bluebonnets
Imagine a field filled with these beauties and then imagine several of them. Texas Bluebonnets in spring are a sight beyond compare. If you're driving on a country road in Central Texas in March or April, be prepared for the drive to be a leisurely one. Even if you aren't slowing and stopping periodically to gaze in wonder and delight, other folks on the road will be! And those with small children are required by state law to stop and pose said children in no less than three spots. Seriously. I'm a native Texan, I know these things.
I'll be in the heart of bluebonnet country over the next few days but I suspect the show won't be as far along even 90 miles west of me. I'll take my camera along nonetheless!
