Bluebonnets Cover the Land

For a few weeks, every year, Texas turns blue….the bluebonnets bloom and cover fields and meadows, they line roadside shoulders, they pop up in yards across the state. We appreciate the state highway deptartment's long-time program to spread the seeds across the state. What a wonder it is to behold fields of blue as we travel the highways and byways.

A Smattering of Central Texas Wildflowers



Consider the lilies how they grow: 
they toil not, they spin not;
 and yet I say unto you,
 that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
Luke 12:27

We Serve a RISEN Savior

Hallelujah

Bluebonnets Up Close and Personal

Texans take great pride in the bluebonnet. It blooms in March and April, and is gone by May, but Ooooooh, while it is in bloom, we celebrate. There are bluebonnet photo contests, and lots and lots of folks stopping to wade through roadside blankets of blue to take pictures of their children sitting in the patches of flowers. 

I am just like so many other Texans with a camera in my hand, down on my knees to get as close as possible to the beauteous blue blooms. Here are a few shots to prove it!

Texas Bluebonnets and Budding Leaves


It's been a while since I posted. Time to get back in gear and share some of the beauty of God's creation as I see it through the lens of my camera.

Spring time is fabulous when we have had enough rain. This year, the bluebonnets have covered hills and roadsides throughout the state.

I'm looking forward to sharing some more in the next few days.

God bless you and yours,
Nancy K.
