Early Bluebonnets

In Texas, there is a time of year when bluebonnets blanket all un-mowed areas, and the fields and medians take on the look of being covered with a breezy blue carpet. The transformation can begin as early as late February, but it usually takes a month or so for the flower patches to spread out, thicken up, and really live up to the Texas bluebonnet reputation. 

It is an exciting time for a little girl who is just awakening to the many different kinds of flowers that come with early spring, and we couldn't resist beginning the obligatory photo shoots a little early this year. Now, when we drive down the road, she points out every patch of "bah-loo bonnet flah-wers!"
