Without a doubt this is my favorite time of year in Texas. October comes a close second. But March brings warm weather and blooming wildflowers. As we boarded the plane I hoped we would see bluebonnets even though mid-March is a bit early for them, especially with the very cold winter Texas had. However, as we drove Highway 71 toward Austin, there were plenty of early blooms. In some patches there was the beautiful blue blankets that make families pull over on the side of the highway, risking limb and life, for the annual "kids in the bluebonnets" photo. Luckily for us, my dad carefully cultivated a few bluebonnets in his front garden a few years ago and they now faithfully pop up spring after spring. So having already subjected Harris to his bluebonnet photo, we simply enjoyed the pop of color all the way to Austin.

We later joined Lindsey and Caroline at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center in Austin for some bluebonnet time. We had so much fun!

  1. So cute! So glad they came early for you this year! Harris is getting so big. Looking forward to your move back this summer so we can finally visit.

  2. You and Harris and the bluebonnets all look very beautiful. :)
