It’s wildflower season in Texas, which means bluebonnets and Indian paintbrush and all of their colorful friends have come out to play. One of the most scenic drives in the Houston area is called the Texas Independence Trail and last weekend, The Complete Package and I grabbed Ziggy and hit the trail. Here’s a glimpse of what we saw along the way. A little piece of Texas, just for you.
I love this fun tractor mailbox. I want to ride it into the sunset and just keep going. It reminds me of ‘Mater from the Cars movies, which just makes it that much more fun. Remember how they’d sneak up on tractors and honk, and the tractors would moo and then fall over backwards? I love that part.
Speaking of fun, we had a fabulous time getting lost on back roads all day just taking in the sights and doing whatever we wanted. It was so relaxing. The Complete Package thinks we were about 2 weeks early for full blooms, so there’s a good chance we’ll be getting lost in the Texas Hill Country again in a few weeks. If we do, I’ll keep you posted. Between last year’s drought and this spring’s rains, it’s expected to be a bumper crop. Stay tuned!

The bluebonnets are so gorgeous! I’d love to see them in person one day.
Wildflower season in Texas really is a thing to behold. Lady Bird Johnson really did the state a great favor when she championed the wildflower program. I hope you’ll get to see them in person some day!
Well for not being wildflower season, you did pretty well. Texas bluebonnets remind me of grape hyacinths, which are a favorite of mine. I look forward to vicariously seeing a whole field of them.
I really hope they’ll be in full bloom next weekend. I absolutely love this time of year!
