Saturday Scribbles Vol 2.8
Happy Saturday my friends. Today is a beautiful day. Spring has unofficially arrived in Houston. The temperatures have been in the 70's most of the week. And the pollen counts have been crazy high. Which all adds up to spring arriving.
Spring is my favorite season, I think. Yes I know, I can't breathe for half of it (hello allergies!), but there's something about spring in general that makes me smile. Maybe it's the fact that wildflowers bloom like crazy. Or that farms have an abundance of baby animals. Or the fact that there's Easter.
Spring in Texas means that the hill country hillsides become covered in bluebonnets. Where I'm at in Houston is just a short drive to Brenham and other popular locations for photo shoots of the abundance of bluebonnets growing along the sides of the road. My cousin has a field in her backyard and every year, she has a beautiful bluebonnet crop.
These pictures were taken about 6 years ago in my cousin's backyard. And if you notice, you'll see that they were also used in my blog's title picture.
What are some of your favorite spring flowers?
