Bluebonnet Photo

Post by Paladin »

I realize that bluebonnet season is well past but I just couldn't resist the urge to share this with my pals. This field is located adjacent to my church and I thought it was an exceptional view.

That's beautiful Ray, thanks for posting. Most of the bleubonnets here are going to seed. A few flowers are still blooming but the grass is now so tall you can't see the flowers unless you are standing in the middle of them.

Very pretty Ray. We have "bluegrass" here in Kentucky that's not really blue. Those Bluebonnets are BLUE!

WOW!, Ray. Beautiful field and photo. I can't say I witnessed it, but I recall years ago when Lady Bird Johnson received great praise for renewing wild flowers all over Texas. Such flowers make a great impact on the beauty of the land. Thanks for sharing.

Those are beautiful Ray. You don’t see fields of those growing here in Indiana. I’d love to see a field of these or Virginia Bluebells.

Beautiful Pic, Ray.

My mom and some of her friends (all around retirement age) used to go on trips / tours to see the wildflowers down around the hill country. They bought packets of wild flower seeds and threw the seeds along the roadways as they drove around. I believe the tours were part of Ladybird Johnson's wildflower efforts.
