It's bluebonnet season in Texas. Bluebonnets are our state flower.
And thanks to Lady Bird Johnson's efforts towards nature conservation and beautification of our roadways, every April fields upon fields along roads, highways and interstates in this state erupt in a sea of blue for a few weeks.
It is breathtaking.
April is my favoritest month for these very views (and one of the times of year I desperately missed Texas when I was living in Boston). It played a small part in my desire to get married in April.
This year they first started blooming about a week/week-and-a-half ago. I'm hoping they last another week as I really want my out-of-state friends to see how gorgeous it can be here when they come into town for our wedding.
