I just don’t remember the bluebonnets looking this pretty last year. We were on our way home yesterday from my husband’s work and I decided at the last-minute to pull over and take some pictures. And, boy was it contagious….other cars followed behind me…It was awesome. So glad this traditions is still going on strong here in north Texas.

Did you know…
The Texas bluebonnet became the official state flower of the Lone Star State in 1901. Its scientific name is Lupinus texensis. Other names for the Texas bluebonnet are buffalo clover and wolf flower. Mexicans refer to this flower as el conejo. Varieties grow in the western, southern, and eastern regions of Texas.
Texas bluebonnets are both perennials and annuals. In warmer climates, they are perennials. Though they tend to bloom more successfully in warmer climates, Texas bluebonnets can also be grown as annuals in colder climates if they are planted in areas that have full sun 8 to 10 hours a day.
