About the Graphic

I spotted these little Blue Bonnets on a walk in my neighborhood. Not bad for a cell phone picture. I’m hoping the little bluebonnets will spread all along the street.

About the Quote

I spotted this quote in the April issue of Martha Stewart’s Living magazine. Spring flowers always bring a smile to my lips and I think Botanist Burbank is so correct. Flowers are food for the soul.

About the Image: Finnegan MacCool in the wildflowers taken along a Texas hill country road.  As Lady Bird Johnson and her husband, Lyndon Johnson, crisscrossed American on the campaign trail, she saw the opportunity for roadside restoration to bring regional identity to areas that otherwise might be lined with billboards and invasive species.Thanks to their Highway Beautification Act of 1965 drives along highways in the springtime do offer opportunities to stop and snap pictures and be touched by regional flowers.

Being true Texans, Beekeeper Brian and I have bluebonnets in our yard.  These came from seeds handed out at the funeral of Brian’s step mother.  Each year the patch gets larger.  It makes me smile.

This year Brian noticed the bees on the bluebonnets.  He watched as the flowers opened what seemed like a doorway to allow the bee to collect pollen.  It was fascinating.

He was able to get some great pictures. (Did I mention Brian has a degree in photography from the Art Institute of Houston?)  He is a man of many talents!   The only thing better than bluebonnets in our yard is our own bees on the bluebonnets.
