Our State Flower

The state flower of Texas  the Bluebonnet is in the Lupine family, and this is the time of year that they are blooming. Driving west out of Houston you will see highway medians, roadsides and fields with a beautiful carpet of blue. The ones pictured here are blooming near a restaurant (in town). I am going to try my best to get out into the countryside to see them....

  1. I didn't know you had a state flower, how nice.

  2. Janey, they have started coming out just this last week in North Texas and suddenly they are everywhere. I missed taking pictures of all the pretty tulips in every flower bed in town, so maybe I can take pictures of the bluebonnets!
