Although I am currently away from Texas, and Spring is either in a distant past or a distant future, I don’t think I should postpone this post any further.

Texas has many things to offer to visitors. My absolute favorite is spring in the Hill Country or Central Texas.

Fields and every square foot of grass are covered in wildflowers. The most beautiful flowers color the landscape. And when one type of flower dies, another takes over. It is really amazing.

One of the emblematic flowers of the state of Texas, and of the season, is the Texas Bluebonnet. It is the “State Flower of Texas” and a native of the state.

I have to confess something though. I used to think that these extraordinary pictures of entire fields of bluebonnets were Photoshopped. Until I saw them with my own eyes.

If you must visit Texas only once, I highly recommend these area and seasons. You will be enchanted.

With the next post, I will show you some of the variety of wildflowers. But with this post, I invite you to enjoy bluebonnets.
