Spring is here, and the bluebonnets have sprung! The Texas State Flower is lovely to behold, and behold, it is everywhere around here!
We had a lovely big patch in the yard…until my dad came along yesterday and bush-hogged them. (“Whaa? Flowers? I was just mowing the weeds down. Oh. Sorry.”) Fortunately there were a few left standing and I was able to capture them. Technically I think you’re not supposed to pick them, but we’re on private property so… picking, bush-hogging, what’s the difference?
I walked down the road a bit to another lot where there was a large, intact patch. I think they are so charming.
And this is Texas for you: Bluebonnets and cacti. There you go.
And here’s a look at this blasted gold stuff that I think is causing my current allergic demise. Bah. They do not frill me.
What’s FRILLING you this weekend?
