Bluebonnets at Hummingbird Farms

It's a beautiful spring here in the Texas Hill Country. This patch of bluebonnets was quite a surprise for us. They popped up just adjacent to our barn. We've had them every year, but never like this. So of course now I'm inspired to plant a WHOLE bunch of seeds for next year! Well, let me re-phrase that. I'm inspired to get Jack to plant a whole bunch of seeds for next year....

Throughout the Hill Country there are cars parked on the sides of the roads taking snapshots, and more specifically, taking pictures of their kids and pets in the wildflowers.
Lisa sent the picture below to me. Not sure where it came from, or I'd give them credit. The only thing I know is that it was taken in Texas.

Texas and rattlesnakes - it happens. Even in the bluebonnets....
