Texas Bluebonnets - March 18, 2017

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!

Patricia- thank you for showing my beautiful Texas Bluebonnets.  When I was growing up, every child had their picture taken in a field of Bluebonnets.  And when you see them mixed with the Indian Paintbrushes, it's a beautiful site.

Kathy Streib - I was secretly hoping you'd stop by to see the Texas Bluebonnets. You're still a girl with a big Texas heart!!! The tradition of taking children in the fields to have their pictures taken still continues. I had to drive awhile to take these photos. I figured, kids have to eat and parents need to make dinner too - I was right! Therefore, I had a great window of opportunity to take these shots! 

I just love when the Indian Paintbrushes pop up. There's something magical about them too!

Thanks for sharing these beautiful pictures. It's about the time of year people will be stopped on side of the road snapping photos of their children among the blue bonnets.

It must be wonderful to drive along the highways and see the full effect of springtime in bloom.  We just don't get that here, but I did see a lot of yellow wild flowers the other day in a normally dry region.

Sybil Campbell - I've always loved flowers. Posting photographs of flowers growing straight from my garden or roadside wildflowers in Texas are something I have a passion for and enjoy. If I could spread joy on ActiveRain to people like you and Georgie Hunter R(S) 58089 who may not get to experience them where you live, makes me feel proud to do so.
