Bluebonnets

I live in Texas. The state flower is the bluebonnet (which usually only blooms about now.) They're not easy to grow but if you plant them, they'll usually come back every year. In certain parts of TX, they're all over. Where I live, they're only on the sides of some highways (thanks to the highway department for planting them.) Of course, the 'thing' to do is to stop and take a picture with them. I don't know why. It's somethings I (and many other people) do. So, on the way back from a trip a couple of weeks ago, we stopped and took a couple pics. Only one decent one came out, lol! I love the color of the bluebonnets!

I saw a picture on my brother's facebook page with this lovely picture of bluebonnets and grabbed it to share as well.

Gorgeous! I visited my uncle years ago when he lived in Dripping Springs. It was wild flower season. We stopped every so often just to take in the breathtaking views and smell the wild fragrances. Awesome!

I like the surreal look... blue for as far as you can see.
