Blue Paint

I hope these women have plenty of blue paint on their palettes as they paint the bluebonnets in East Texas.

**We are away, getting our "mountain scenery" fix for the week. I will have only limited computer and internet access, but will be able to read comments on my phone. I will catch up with your photos later. Happy shooting.

Before I read your words, I was thinking the self-same thing and that they had dressed for the occasion, too . . I'd love to see what they put to canvas there.

Ah, so that's what I missed when I went to Texas Hill Country to photograph the spring flowers. That year there was a drought. No flowers.

@Donna: That may have been the same year we went down to Hill Country for flowers and there were none to be found! This photo was in East Texas, much closer for me, but they were great all over this year. I hope you can come back another year and have better luck.

Really an amazing blue sea there! I have only seen one other like it - a glacier of daisies spilling down before me somewhere up here in the hills where we took you. Hope your trip is fun and memorable. Looking forward to proof of posts.
