I took my first Bluebonnet picture today.
If you’re not from Texas you might not understand the excitement of that. The first ones are loners, just one or two, here and there. But you know that more are coming and soon there will be solid blue fields beckoning you to pull over. To stop your journey, for just a few moments to record the beauty that you’ll swear is much better than last year.
Spring comes with the flowers. The wild flowers that resist the over eager mowers, coming up sometimes in the most peculiar places. But always eager to share their glory, even if it is for only a short time before summer’s heat crushes their enthusiasm.
I took my first Bluebonnet picture today, but not my last.
