Bluebonnets ~ BEWARE!!!

Managing Real Estate Broker with Magnolia Realty ~ Granbury TREC #547752


Bluebonnets ~ BEWARE!!  During this time of year in Texas, one of the many bonuses of our great state are the beautiful Bluebonnets that poke their lovely heads through the soil to tell us that it is Spring!  Families by the thousands stop on the sides of the road to photograph these beautiful flowers many times with the children and pets.

Today as I was out jogging and admiring the stunning blankets of blue, I caught something from my eye and in horror realized it was a snake!  Moments before I had stopped to snap a few pictures with my phone of these flowers and after seeing the snake realized that amongst the beauty can be DANGER!

Please, please be careful out there folks!  As our temperatures warm up, those snakes are coming out to warm up as well!  Before you head into those gorgeous flowers, take a few minutes to take just a few precautions.

  • Make some noise as you approach the flowers to disturb any potential lurking snake.
  • Make sure you park safely along highways and roadways and use caution getting in and out of the car.
  • Keep your eyes OPEN and really scan the area BEFORE venturing into the flowers.
  • Send someone in boots to make sure the area is safe before getting the kids out of the car.

Taking just a few easy steps and being alert and aware could potentially save your life and that of your children!  Taking pictures in the Bluebonnets is a yearly tradition in Texas.  Be careful and be safe!  Happy Spring to all!

The flowers are beautiful - the snake not so much.   Good thing you had your wits about you--must be all those real estate dealings that prepared you for the unexpected - might be a good blog topic(LOL)!

Paula:  Good warning....our area is semi-desert with snakes also!  Ours are usually much smaller than that but I have seen them while showing houses too!

Thanks Ladies.  I hope to never encounter a Diamondback Rattler but we cannot be too careful.

Paula - this reminds me when I took Gordon hiking and two snakes scurried over his open-toed sandals.  He jumped three feet off the ground.  It was hilarious.  Cherise
