Oak Tree and Texas Bluebonnets – A wonderful old oak tree among a field of texas bluebonnets down near Poteet Texas south of San Antonio late in the day as the sun sink lower in the sky. There were a lot of field of wildflowers in this area but most had been overtaken by the poppies. The poppies were introduced accidently about ten year ago we heard and unfortunely they have become invasive and in some place you will not see the wildflowers because the poppies have over taken over the areas. There were a few in this field but it was the best bluebonnets we saw since we were a little late to the party in this area. We like this field a lot and we took a few different shot from here. This image was just our beloved texas bluebonnets, an large oak tree, with sime mesquite tree along the fringes of the field with a few poppies mixed in on this ranch in south central area of the country for a nice Texas landscape. The texas bluebonnet is the state flower and begin with a small hard seed and over time the rain, wind will soften the seed so it can germinate in the fall and slowly over time it begins to take root and it bright green leave come out every spring usually from March to the end of April. That when it all begins and the flowers start to put on a spring show. No doubt that what happen in this great field of bluebonnets out south of San Antonio. We were lucky that they were allowed to grow in this field so we could capture this image. We look forward to the yearly show of bluebonnets that come out for such a short time.
Bluebonnet Images – Bluebonnet Sunrise Morning – We capture this bluebonnet images at sunrise just as the sun rays were coming through the trees and rising over this ranch with a great field of bluebonnets along with the morning mist hovering over the field. Bluebonnet pictures are one of our favorite to capture and on a good year like they were this year it was easy landscape to capture. We capture this near Ennis Texas but they have never come back like they were since that time. We can only hope they will be as good as this in the next growing season somewhere. The Texas lupine is actually several different varieties of bluebonnets but all are beautiful to see along the roads, in fields and gardens in spring time. It is getting close to bluebonnet season again so we await the latest crop of flowers and hope for a good year!
