Springtime in Texas brings Bluebonnets. Millions of them all across the state. On I 35, FM 3009, RM 2627 and in fields, pastures, and gardens everywhere. It is the state flower and any one of the 5 species found in Texas count as the state flower.
People will stop on the side of the road grab their kids,
and cameras and take family photos, wedding photos,
engagement photos, baby photos all kinds of photos in clumps and clusters of these beautiful blue flowers.
They were called Bluebonnets because the shape of the blossom
resembles the huge bonnets
worn by pioneer women to keep the sun out of their faces.
So this week I am going to show you Bonnets of Blue.
