The blue bonnets are blooming!

Yes the roads are again adorned in their seasonal best. Beautiful blue bonnets everywhere you look. There is nothing quite as gorgeous to me as to be driving down the highway and seeing waves and waves of blue as far as I can see. They are apparently early this year. Last year I was told they were early as they normally burst in to full bloom in early May. Last year's were at their peak mid April. And this year, even earlier, End of March and they were already everywhere. We can thank Lady Bird Johnson for this seasonal beauty as she's the one who encouraged the planting of them many years ago. It's easy to see why they are the state flower.
