First time I heard of Blue Bonnet. Lovely name and the flower's beautiful! Is it easy to grow them?

Adi said...

Yes, we do love those bluebonnets. They are out all over the roadsides and fields west of Navasota and Hempstead.
I do hope Jim will take us out to play in them.

We had a nice retired life walk this morning. It got pretty warm in the afternoon. Jim took me visiting the folks at the assisted living center then, we stayed in the airconditioning.

Happy WW! Thanks for the visit and nice comment.

Just Lovely. I'm a bit envious of your Butterfly surprise! You should enjoy that a great deal.

I love spring. I need to take some pics of the cherry blossoms before they're all gone. I think that's our state tree.
