It's that time again - springtime in Texas and bluebonnet season.

The state flower, Texas bluebonnet, is a species of lupine endemic to Texas. Some other related species of lupines are also called bluebonnets.

Amazing Barbara ---- I love all of the colours --- they grow here mostly along the roads in the country.
But I do not start to have them in the garden, I might end up like a field in your picture --- and there its gorgeous. !!! (not in my backyard !!)\Kind regards and a nice Sunday Monika
