If you're experiencing a terrible case of spring fever, I'm not sure if this post will cheer you or depress you. I know some parts of the country are still thawing out, but spring has sprung here and I have pictures.
Last Sunday afternoon we drove to the Brenham area in search of wildflowers and we were not disappointed.
The fields are just beginning to show their colors. We saw bluebonnets, Indian paintbrush and other wildflowers at Old Baylor Park in Independence.
The most beautiful of the wildflowers is the Texas bluebonnet. It's our state flower and source of pride for Texans.
There is nothing that can compare to sitting in a field of bluebonnets on a warm spring day. I recommend everyone experience this at least once in their life.
In Brenham we had a field of bluebonnets all to ourselves, so we set up the tripod for pictures. John was the cameraman for this shoot. He did all the running back and forth.
I should have known he was up to something when I saw a twinkle in his eye right before this shot.
This weekend should be even better for bluebonnets in Brenham. Other parts of Texas may have to wait a bit longer.
