Texas Cattle and Bluebonnets
My OH and I had to drive to Brenham, TX on business today. The drive was beautiful, there were fields of Bluebonnets, the Texas state flower. This spot where we stopped to take the photo was very popular. Cars were lined up on the side of the road taking pictures. This time of year I always think of my mom, her birthday would have been in a few days. We always took a drive around her birthday to see the Bluebonnets, she loved Bluebonnets!!! So do I and I'm sure almost every Texan.

I googled English bluebells

So there is a difference.

Hi Donna,
I didn't know you had a blog, that's awesome, now I can check up on you on a regular basis because I am rarely on flickr.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog, and your sweet comment. I think we are both very lucky girls to have our little craft spaces, but you especially because you have your own cottage sighhhhh!!

Thanks for the link, and I'm linking you right back.
XO

We are blessed with those lovely flowers, aren't we. I, myself prefer to see the cows. We have plenty of them near our home. I like to just stop my car and watch them.

Hi Donna, what an awsome pic ..grazing the blue bonnets! As you know already I'm so envious...cannot grow blue bonnets (known as lupins here, I always get huge aphids on them that totally kill them.)....can grow blue bells though...but we do have a bit of a problem here...namely the spanish bluebell..it has thicker leaves and no scent..the true english blue bell has very thin leaves and loads of heavenly scent!..the two interbred to give something looking like the english bluebell but having no scent. luckily the blubs I planted that I brought from our last house seem to have ketp true to the true English ones!
