Bluebonnet field

Wanted to show you more shots of the front field in full bluebonnet glory.

The way the wildflowers pick their winding path across the green reminds me of a river and makes me think of a Monet painting.

One last shot looking back towards the house and pond - the bluebonnets are scarcer there but it's still beautiful to me.

I like these pictures much better without all the cows frolicking about among the bluebonnets, even though they were amusing. Monet, I was thinking the same thing.

I'd expect to see some ducks and geese swimming across the fields of blue. Beautiful!

Ok! enough bragging-- it is annoying to those of us who are lupine poor!! Especially us Texan ex-pats!! ;o)

Years ago I tried to get bluebonnets to grow in my Ok fields but it didn't work.

As a Texan, I love bluebonnets. They are scarce around here this year since we haven't had rain here in months. Ya'll are getting more up in your parts...rain and bluebonnets.
