Springtime in Texas


Springtime in Texas means the bluebonnets are in bloom. They start blooming in early April and only last about six weeks, darn it. I would love for them to last longer.

Bluebonnets aren't the only wildflowers we enjoy in our beautiful state. There are also pink primroses.



And Indian Paintbrush. Their orange color is so striking against the green grass.



Plus these cute little yellow daisy-looking wildflowers. I'm not sure of their name, but I don't need to know the name to enjoy them.



And many more. If you want to see something truly beautiful, visit Texas in the springtime. You'll love our wildflowers as much as we do.

Bluebonnets always make me think of Rollerball.

Gorgeous, Lynn! I love spring flowers. Our Forsythias are blooming, the daffodils and my weeping cherry tree. My tulips are about to bloom too. Now if it would get warmer. :)

I love the flowers. Makes me want to pack and pop on over to Texas for a visit.

Love the flowers. There's a light sprinkle of snow covering everything here this morning.

The bluebonnet photo was simply lovely! A good friend of mine, author Milton T. Burton (who passed away in December 2011) always forwarded me photos of the expanses of the flowers when they bloomed. They were his favorites! Thank you for sharing all the springtime Texas blooms!
