Spring Flowers

Spring has definitely sprung here in central Texas. In fact, it started a while ago and is building momentum every day.  It started the end of February with the Mountain Laurels.

Next came the Red Bud blooms.

And then.....and then......the Bluebonnets started their parade. On our way back from Corpus Christi for Spring Break, we saw them along the roadsides. Now they are breaking out all over San Antonio.

Don't worry, they are just starting. There will be more.

Now please don't start with the "lupines" Texas, they are bluebonnets, a very well recognized version of the lupines you may see elsewhere. They are the Texas State Flower.....Bluebonnets.

The tips start out white and may turn purple as they age.

This field near Cibolo will be totally carpeted in blue in a matter of days.

If you are heading to the Hill Country, have patience. The bluebonnets will arrive in a week or two. This promises to be a really good year. I'll be back.....there will be more!
