Springtime in Texas
I was very excited to get my answer to "what symbolizes spring to you?" printed in the April issue of CK magazine. I wrote about the Texas wildflowers. I was lucky enough to accidentally find a place with a parking lot to get these bluebonnet pictures yesterday. Most of the flowers I usually see are on the side of the freeway and it would be crazy to stop.
Here in North Texas, spring is always glorious. We have Texas wildflowers blanketing the fields and the medians and shoulders of our highways. You'll find bluebonnets, Indian paintbrushes, buttercups and Black-eyed Susans. You'll find bluebells and foxglove and Texas thistle. It is a veritable feast of vivid blues and reds and yellows and purples. Families stop and take photographs of their children in the fields.
Yesterday's winners were #9 Luvenkmz, #3 Marti, and #5 Corey. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your address. Please come back tomorrow. You can comment on any post no matter how far back. It does not have to be the one for today.
