Bluebonnets are blooming! We have a small area where they come up every year and that area has more than doubled! Yes, I'd like to use a whole bunch of exclamation points, but I'll refrain. Then again, maybe not!!!
They're scattered in this very rocky area. The yellow bladderpods are fairly thick and verbena are making a nice show there too.
I wait for this every year!!!! Oops, I mean: I wait for this every year.
I love the deep red violet color on the petals.
Spanish Dagger update:
The bloom is made up of huge amounts of individual flowers. You can see that this one will be bigger soon, when all of the red pods open up.
In my last post about Mountain Laurel, they were just beginning to show color. Now, this is an explosion of violets!
The verbena are getting thicker and carpets of these beauties are starting.
This is a beautiful mix of verbena and bladderpods.
This next photo wasn't taken on our place, but I couldn't pass up how pretty it was. I wanted a shot without the roadway, but, this was all I could get.
I have so many great spring photos, I'm posting a blog with just these gorgeous flowers. Next post I'll update you on my art work.
My helpers said they wanted a "Spring Break." Yes, I was a little shocked, too, but they've sent me a photo.
