Bluebonnets with mesquite makes for a very Texas Hill Country look since ever spring wildflowers bloom among the mesquite and cactus. Theres a reason they are so special even our Legislature felt the need to declare the bluebonnet or Lupine the state flower of texas. In this image we were able to capture the sun rays through the mesquite tree over this field of bluebonnet wildflowers in the Texas Hill Country for a scenic landscape. The Texas bluebonnet or lupine were declared the state flower by the Texas legislature in 1971 that along with the Lady Bird Johnson Highway Beautification Act have helped the wildflowers in the southwestern United State become a favorite thing to see every spring. People come from all over to see them and enjoy these wonderful wildflowers. It has become a ritural to search for these wonderful field of flowers every spring. Many bring their children, their dogs, their favorite items to put in the wildflowers to be photographed. We have seen boots, high heels, cowboy hats and stuffed toys.
Bluebonnet sunrise along the river just as the sun ray pop over the horizon to wish us good morning. The Texas bluebonnet is the most popular wildflower as people come from long way off just to see them. I have met people who traveled from California who came to see the bluebonnets here. Of course not all years are great it has to do with the fall rains not enough and these hardy plants may not show their best, but just wait a year and maybe the next year will do it. In any case the Texas bluebonnet is still the most popular wildflower people have festival for them, name their towns as the bluebonnet capital so who are we to question them. We loved the tranquility of this image with the sunrise over the water and a nice field of bluebonnets with a tents along the river edge. Spring time in the Texas hill country can be magicali f your in the right place and it bluebonnet season. Lady Bird started this with her Highway Beautification Act and we are so happy she did!
