Spring is Here!! – By Ginny Stehling
Spring is Here!!!! The Bluebonnets are in full bloom and growing up daily all over the Hill Country! Now is the time to spend your weekend driving through the beautiful Hill Country with your windows down and radio on. Even though we didn’t get all the rain when needed to get this past fall the Bluebonnets still seem to have made their way up through the ground to grace us with their presence. Bluebonnets have been loved since man first trod the vast prairies of Texas.
Indians wove fascinating folk tales around them. The early day Spanish priests gathered the seeds and grew them around their missions. This practice gave rise to the myth that the padres had brought the plant from Spain, but this cannot be true since the two predominant species of bluebonnets are found growing naturally only in Texas and at no other location in the world. How lucky we are to be able to stop our cars, jump out, and take great family pictures with them all spring long? Thank you bluebonnet for continuing to grow every year for us to enjoy your beauty….
