Field of Bluebonnets
Brenham Christian Academy
March is a beautiful month in Texas. Wildflowers begin to bloom near the end of the month and will peak in mid-April. The most famous wildflower in Texas is it's state flower, the bluebonnet. The only place in the world where it grows naturally is in Texas. Wildflowers of all types can be found growing along the side of the roads, but a showy field of bluebonnets will take your breath away.
Each March I look forward to the return of the Purple Martins. We have a martin house in our backyard. Once martins nest at your location, they will return each year. Our martins have been nesting here for three or four years. Their song is so unique and very pleasing. I love to wake to it each morning.
March is also madness, as in March Madness Basketball. Each year our son-in-law sets up an online family tournament. We all have our special method of making our picks. Some of the serious competitors in the family actually follow college basketball through the season and make their selections from first hand knowledge. My method is to do last minute "research", which this year means I copied some ESPN sports broadcaster's final four picks and guessed at the rest or flipped a coin when I couldn't decide. I was doing really well until this weekend. Currently I'm in fourth place, but still have a shot (even though it's a long shot) at the title. My pick for the winning team is Georgetown and they're still in it.
March is the start of spring--my favorite time of year.
