yesterday I was driving through Memorial Park in Houston and saw the
very 1st bluebonnets with their little heads popping up.

it makes us smile to see these native plants each Spring.

this special park is a huge place and so much a part of Houston's lifestyle,
there were 100's of joggers, every baseball diamond was being used.

it a way it was like EVERYONE celebrated the arrival of Spring at exactly the same time.

they will be with us until the temps rise so anyone who can get in the car
& drive an hour or 2 into the hill country can share in the glory.

this is almost all of us

Oh, Marsha. I love Blue Bonnets! They remind me of lupines.
Hope that you are having a wonderful spring.

What a beautiful photo, both the bluebonnets and horses. For those of us who have seasonal changes it 's like an alarm goes off in our hearts and says it's Spring. I find it insane that our weather which has been lovely may turn to snow on Tuesday!
Happy Sunday,

I so remember the Blue Bonnets.
In fact I have a photo from 1940 with my Mother holding me in a field
of Blue Bonnets. It's said Maine may get weather in a week in the 40's, that's a
Spring day. Today it is 16 degrees but feels like 5 degrees.
Our Maple Syrup season has been ruined,
Enjoy the wonderful views of Spring. Wish I could hitch a ride in your car.
