GOOD NEWS! Last summer’s drought, plentiful winter rains, and the wildfires of last year have set the state up for an abundant crop of bluebonnets, the state flower of Texas. For those that don’t know, the bluebonnet is to Texas, what the shamrock is to Ireland.
It is still early, but from the bluebonnets I have seen that have already bloomed, the plants are healthy and thick with pods. It looks like bluebonnets will be plentiful in the Hill Country of Texas, more so than in years past. Get your camera ready, load up the kids and the dog, and head to the Hill Country.
There is help to plan your outing; check out www.texaswildflowerpictures.com which is a very informative site for updates on Texas wildflower conditions. If you have an extra special photo of your trip to share, please send to www.Facebook.com/authordavidbowles and I will post it on my author’s page. While there, I would appreciate your liking my author page, and friending it.
