April Flowers

By
Real Estate Agent with KW Coastal Bend

There is a saying that April showers bring May flowers.   

Last night, I just got back home from a quick trip to Colorado.  In Colorado, that saying seems to be true.   I did not see any wild flowers growing along the side the roads.    After all, it was still freezing cold.  It was between 26-34 degrees on the day that I was there.    I did not see any wild flowers but I did see a light dusting of snow. 

As result, I decided to return to Texas asap so that I could enjoy the "beach" weather again.    Don't get me wrong, Colorado is a beautiful state.   In fact, I spent the last 10 springs in Colorado.  However, this year I have been in the mood for white sand not snow.     

I did not realize how I missed seeing the blue bonnets until I noticed them growing along the sides of some of the highways in the southern parts of Texas, where it is warmer.    If you are not familiar with blue bonnets, they are the Texas state flower.

It was not practical for me to stop and photograph the bluebonnets that I say growing along the highways.  Otherwise, I would have never made it to Colorado in a timely manner.   However, I did find some bluebonnets to photograph in the Corpus Christi area.   

Several people in the Ocean Drive area in Corpus Christi have bluebonnets growing in their yards.   Last Sunday, I found the patch of bluebonnets that are in the photograph above in Rockport.  Rockport is a little beach community about 30 minutes away from Corpus Christi.  

What about you?   Are the flowers in bloom where you live?  If so, which are your favorite?  

 

I hope that you have a wonderful April.

Sondra,

Beautiful photos, and our favorites are in bloom, California poppies and lupines side by side.  I will pullover our car this Saturday and take a photo. Happy April to you.  A

Sondra, did you move down there, or are you still in the Springs?  Those flowers are gorgeous, and NOPE, we don't have any yet.

Hello and with the snow we had a couple of weeks ago flowers are slow coming up in Aurora.

Hi Sondra! Those are GORGEOUS and I did not know they were the TX state flower. Makes you wonder if those in Corpus Christi are from TX and brought a little nostalgia with them to FL!! 

 

Hope to see you on the ZOOM call tomorrow!
