Bluebonnet City

We got about 4 inches of rain a few weeks ago, which must have been perfect timing for the bluebonnets (State Flower of Texas, by the way). They exploded, and they’re beautiful.

Here’s a pic from today (and this is just a convenience photo, there are much more dense collections around, but I was cycling and trying not to croak during the ride):


The red flowers, by the way, are still bluebonnets, but they’re called maroon bluebonnets. There, you learned something today.

    Your Grandma Welsh would have LOVED this! She used to thoroughly enjoy driving and sharing bluebonnets with us.
