With 80 degree temperatures today, it was the perfect day to enjoy the Texas Bluebonnets. I took these photos on Flower Mound Road between the intersections of Garden Ridge and Long Prairie Road. The sky was blue! The late afternoon sun gave me perfect color for taking photos. My hobbies include photography, reading, and writing. It was the perfect day to capture not only bluebonnets growing along the roadsides, but Wisteria dripping from branches too.
There is something about bluebonnets that is just so beautiful! It's the official signal that spring is here to stay awhile. The wildflowers grow along the roadsides. Even when traffic is heavy, there's something in the aroma that just makes people slow down to appreciate Mother Nature's beauty with collective calmness. The State Flower is the Bluebonnet and the State Tree is Pecan. With a combination like that, it's easy to fall in love with Texas. Buying good Pecan Pie is no problem! Did you know there are more than 5,000 species of native Texas wildflowers? People love to drive the Texas Highways to take pictures of them too! I'm wild about wildflowers and this is my first page of Wildflowers for 2017. The variations in color never ceases to amaze me. I guarantee, more will follow. The best time to see and appreciate wildflowers is March through May. For now, I'm enjoying my fields of bluebonnets all around Flower Mound!
