I took this picture last year on the service road that our road runs into, off the major highway.
Seeing the flowers reminded me of one of my favorite books.
The Legend of the Bluebonnet, an Old Tale of Texas, retold and illustrated
by Tomie DePaola
There are many stories about the Bluebonnet and other flowers. I have a book of wildflowers, Texas Wild Flowers, by Ellen D. Schulz, copyright 1928, that tells many of these legends.
A few tiny paintbrush are beginning to bloom. They're a bit late this year. Too cold, I guess.
This photo is from a couple years ago. I have better ones, but they must be on the other computer.
As you can tell, I love flowers.
