These bluebonnets, were taken near Buffalo Gap, on a Sunday drive. There is a riot of bluebonnets this year.
I HATE years that bluebonnets are thin. Thank you, by Lady Bird Johnson, who, after her return from Washington, D.C. as First Lady to persuaded the government of the State of Texas to seed bluebonnets and other wildflowers along the highways throughout the state.
I always thought that picking bluebonnets was illegal in Texas. According to Wikipedia, this is an Urban Legend, and it is merely illegal to tresspass on certain properties.
