Texas Bluebonnets!

I have been wanting to see bluebonnets forever!
But our normal trips to visit relatives in Texas
usually happen in the summer
when the bluebonnets are long gone.
Well this year we had a change of plans
and went in April.

Our cousins knew I wanted to see
the bluebonnets, but most had already come and gone
and they weren't too hopeful.

But while driving past a shopping center
we turned to check out a previous bluebonnet "sighting"
and this is what we found!

A wonderful display!


Not only bluebonnets, but Indian Paintbrush...
all in full bloom.
An unexpected treat of nature's beauty...

and a long awaited wish come true!

Until next time ~



  1. How wonderful to have been able to see so many pretty flowers! :) Enjoy the spring weather. Julie

  2. My dear Terri, what a joy to see such beautiful flowers! I love visiting my husband's aunt and uncle who live in Texas because it means we get to see the lovely Bluebonnets :) They are a charming flower.

    Have a wonderful weekend! Hugs!

  3. Oh my, these are gorgeous photos. What beauty for our eyes to enjoy.

    Wishing you a wonderful week.


  4. Just beautiful! Thanks for sharing your photos! New Follower!
    Hugs, Jody

  5. Lovely photos! And don't you just love the old fashioned names for plants - blue evocative. I always smile at the French name for dandelion: "pis-en-lit" - pee in the bed!!

  6. Terri I am so glad you got to see some bluebonnets here in my state! They did come early, but we're fabulous!! Where were you here from?


I would love to hear from you!
