B = Bluebonnets

Bluebonnets – the state flower of Texas.

Bluebonnets start popping up around the 1st of April. They stay for a couple weeks then they are gone.

During that couple week period Texans race to take photos of their children, their grandchildren and their pets in patches of bluebonnets.

The first two photos I took today, specifically for this post. The last two were taken last year at the peak of bluebonnet season….because I am like all the other crazy Texans….looking for the perfect bluebonnet shot of my family and pets.

The A – Z Challenge will run through April. Each day is a different letter and a different photo…I hope you all enjoy!

    I love the second photo where the blue bonnets are all pooping up like prairie dogs. And of course the one with Sugar and the one with the girls (they look like they are having a great time!). Oh heck, they are all my favorite!

    Wow! I love the bluebonnets. They remind me of the blue forget-me-nots which grow wild through my parents front garden along with snowbells during spring. Naturally, the lawn doesn’t get mowed for awhile.
    We have been over to Western Australia where carpets of wildflowers appear in Spring and it’s very well known for it’s fields of everlasting daisies where like Texas, we try to get the perfect shot.
