Sea of Bluebonnets

Bluebonnets

So it's not Seguin...but I didn't think anyone would mind seeing Navasota's wildflowers since we didn't have any to speak of around here.

After we got the bees, Mark helped me find nice spots to snap photos of the flowers. It was gorgeous! Before I came to Texas, I had no idea what a Bluebonnet was and once I saw my first blue sea of bonnets, I was in love. It's breathtaking when you see a field of them! I got some great shots of the flowers and it was all worth the fall I took while trying to get to the field. I think my excitment got the best of me and I didn't see the barbwire on the ground so my feet got tangled in it all and I went face down...hard and fast! Mark said one second I was there and then next blink I was gone. All I know is that I was stunned. Too stunned to yelp or scream and then I was motionless for a little bit. It was funny, it really was.

I save the camera in my left hand and the phone in my right. My forearms arm are bruised and upper arms hurt but all of that is subsiding already and I'm grateful I didn't break anything, camera or body. :) Like I said, the photos made up for it. But I do notice my body is NOT as forgiving as it once was.

That is a great pic. I wish I could get out to see some bluebonnets, but the best spot I've found for the is near Plantersville on 105; at least, it's the first good spot, after that there's lots of good spots across the Hill Country. (Growing up my mom took me with her to visit her folks in Temple, so I got to see it in all seasons.)

This is wonderful. And hey, you gotta go where the bluebonnets are.

Does Texas have bluebells, too?
