Day 89

Springtime in Texas is, in my opinion, the most beautiful time of the year. The sides of the highways are filled with glorious shades of pinks, yellows, purples, and BLUE wildflowers! Like most Texans, we hunt down the best patches of bluebonnets to get an annual picture taken. We spent about 30 minutes romping through this huge field of our beloved state flower. I don't know if that country song is true, but when it comes to wildflowers, "God Blessed Texas!"

Loved the sun streaming through.

Jumping from clump to clump.



Running wild!

These shots are wonderful and I'm jealous! There are a few little patches popping up around the neighborhood, but I haven't found any larger fields here at all. I'm starting to get a little worried that we might not get much down here this year.

Yep, we're starting to see them bloom here too. We're just north of Dallas. This w/e we'll probably go to the arboritum. Its the perfect time of year!
