Texas Wildflowers


IMG_3643 copy, originally uploaded by orosky17.

As promised in my last post, I got some pictures of the Texas Bluebonnets (our state flower) that are in full abundance this year. Yesterday afternoon, I made Ross take a break from finishing up the bathroom so we could sneak off to the local park. There is one field in the park that is covered in wildflowers. On one side it is just Bluebonnets and on the other it's a mixture of Bluebonnets and Indian Paintbrushes. If I wasn't pregnant, I would have trotted through the field like Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz when she stumbles across the poppy field, but instead we took our time and meandered through the blooms. I wish you were able to smell this picture. The blooms gave off the lightest floral scent that just made you smile. There were a bunch of families out snapping photos of their kids, their dogs and even some horse back riders - gotta love Texas! I took several photos so if you want to check them out click here. If you have never been on Flickr before, once you click on the photo, up at the top you can click on All Sizes to view a larger photo.

Love this picture! We have a lot of the Indian Paintbrush here - just not the Bluebonnets.

So pretty, Kim. Those bluebonnets make me think of Melissa and Cupcake. She was always posting photos of her in the middle of them. Just think next year, you'll have a little panda to stick out there and snap a photo of in the flowers!
