Bluebonnet Sunset Through the Fence

Bluebonnet Sunset Through the Fence – A cedar wood fence with bluebonnets, and an oak tree at sunset make a nice texas Hill country landscape. The bluebonnet were growing in front of this wonderful old oak tree as the sunsets cast its ray through the cedar fence giving a hint of light over the wildflowers. This is what it looks like in the Texas hill country in springtime or we call it bluebonnet season. Spring is here and the bluebonnet is the first sign that it is here. We have traveled thousand of mile over the backroads of the hill country always searching for good locations and today we found another good spot for the perfect texas bluebonnet landscape. In Texas the lupine or bluebonnet along with other wildflowers start coming out in the southern part of the state around Feb and slowly move north through May. Then we have the summer Texas wildflowers that start popping up but most consider the bluebonnet as the main attraction if we can find other wildflowers that even better, but we gotta see the blue bonnets or we feel empty without it. In any case this was a great catch for a traditional texas bluebonnet landscape, its been a pretty good year so far but it fading fast in the hill country all good things must come to and end. Well at least till next year!

Texas Longhorn in the Wildflowers

Texas Longhorn in the Wildflowers – We have come back to this location many times trying to get the longhorns in the wildflowers. They seem to like to take a siesta in the middle of the day so today we were able to capture this one just as he laid down in the wildflowers. You can see a few bluebonnets still hanging on but with all the new yellow wildflowers like I believe these may be black eye susans along with some Indian blankets and may other wildflowers. Of course the one laying in the flowers had to be the far away but no fear we put on the big lens to capture him. Wildflowers and longhorns what could be better than that.

Texas Bluebonnet Sunset Landscape Vertical

Texas Bluebonnet Sunset Landscape Vertical – Texas bluebonnets in the hill country with cactus, a windmill, and a sunset on one of the many back roads we traveled over the last six weeks is a great last minute find. It is always a delight when we can find a nice field of texas bluebonnet wildflowers with prickly pear cactus and a windmill with a great sunset in the sky for that traditional Texas Hill country landscape. This is the iconic Texas scenery in the hill country that we have come to expect. The blue bonnet season is coming to an end for the bluebonnets in the hill country but just around the corner is the other wildflowers that should be popping up shortly to take it place.

Bluebonnets in the Texas Hill Country

Bluebonnets in the Texas Hill Country – We came across this lush field of bluebonnets in the Texas Hill Country outside of Llano on a back road in the hills. We had been traveling for over a month trying to find nice fields of bluebonnet wildflowers on these back roads. On this day the sun was starting to get lower in the sky and cast a golden glow over the trees as it was going down but with enough light left for the blueblonnets along this curved road. These are texas bluebonnets lupines that grow through out the state but the hill country has some of the best when its a good year. It looks like this might be an average good year for the wildflowers so we are happy to finally see more flowers this year. We have had either drought or flooding both of which are not alway good for the bluebonnets and other wildflowers, however they seem to be a little better so far this year. We love our bluebonnets in Texas we have festivals for them, we sell everything with bluebonnets on them including coffee cups, water bottles, T-shirt and pretty much anything you can think of! Bluebonnets start showing up around Texas in February down in the Big Bend area and around some coastal areas south of San Antonio. We were on my way down to beach for a friend birthday party in February and there were already blooming bluebonnets on IH35 going south from San Antonio even though that was more than a month early from when we see normally see them in the hill country. As a general rule the best time to see the Bluebonnets can be any time between the end of March and end of April. They might still be around but the grasses start to overtake the bluebonnet by the end of April, however all is not lost as other wildflowers will start showing up in May and June.

You have appreciate how wonderful it is to take a drive in the hill country in springtime and see all these wonderful wildflowers just growing along the roads.  The wildflowers can be seen along the main highways in the cities or on the back country road anywhere from February through April.  We even have bluebonnet festivals just to show how much people in Texas love their wildflowers.

Oak Tree and Texas Bluebonnets

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.

Big Bend Bluebonnets with Mule Ear

Big Bend Bluebonnets with Mule Ear – One last Big Bend bluebonnets photo from our trip to Big Bend National Park in February this year. This show the bluebonnets with an octillo and shrubs with Mule Ear in the background. The bluebonnets were spectacular and this spot with the wildflowers growing in this desert landscape along side the octillo with the Chiso mountains was a nice landscape find. This is a desert so you expect to find octillos and shrubs cactus but the bluebonnet just gave this barren landscape life. The bluebonnets in Big Bend are a special lupine that can grow several feet tall and thrive in this hostile environment and this year was the first time we have seen them like this, just the right amount of rain in the fall and other conditions that were just right led to the best blooms we have ever seen here in the last ten years we have been coming to the park.

Big Bend Bluebonnets Sunrise

Big Bend Bluebonnets Sunrise – The sunrise was just beginning to push through the clouds over the chiso mountain range near the landmark Cerro Castellan. The sky was getting this heavenly glow from the sun rays as they came through the sky just at the peak of the sun rising up. The Texas bluebonnets were flowing down the slope the valley below in this desert landscape scene. It was a cold morning to be standing and waiting for the sunrise to show and very quite till a coyotes pack began to yelp and howing right below us when a sudden sense of fear over came my other half as there were many yelps, all probably no more than 30 feet below us. Luckily for us they were not interested in us. Whew! This is a wild area and you are likely to run across all kinds of animals here including bear, wild hogs and mountain lions. Big Bend National Park was in full bloom with the big bend bluebonnets this year and it was lovely. This was the best year we have seen in our 10 plus years of coming here. The Big Bend bluebonnet or Chisos bluebonnet are the common name of this lupine. It is native to Texas and Chihuahua, where it can be found blooming from January through June. What surprised us were they were all over the hill sides and along the roads in thick patches. We were curious how they got so high up on the mountain sides. In any case it was a wonderful site to see and made us glad we came for this unique show.

Bluebonnets Images -Bluebonnet Sunrise Morning

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!

Golden Glow Over Bluebonnets

Golden Glow Over Bluebonnets – This was taken on the colorado river as the sunrise cast this golden glow over bluebonnets with these golden clouds cast their warm colors over this amazing field of wildflowers. Springtime in the Texas hill country is my favorite time because of all the wonderful wildflowers everywhere, especially when you come across a big field of bluebonnets like this it can be a magical landscape. These blueboonets were taken along the Colorado river in the Hill Country at sunrise as the sky and cloud had this golden glow. The Texas bluebonnets are a variety of blue wildflowers that grow in the State of Texas every spring which are of the genus Lupinus. Originally in 1901 the state declare only one blue bonnet the state flower however, in 1971 the Texas legislature declare that any flower found to be similar to Lupinus be declared the state flower. The name bluebonnet was from the look of the top of white part of the flower that was similar to the bonnet that woman wore on their heads in the pioneering days. The popularity of the blue bonnet grew after Lady Bird Johnson had push the Highway Beautification Act where she encorage everyone to plant native wildflowers along highways in the state. Today you can find wildflowers along many roads in Texas and the Texas Hill County has been known as one of the better places to find them. Bluebonnets love soil that drain wells and you will find them easily growing along the slopping areas along the roads. Of course some years are better than others but you don’t have to drive too far into the hill country to find them along the roads. It is almost that time for the bluebonnets to bloom anywhere between the middle of March to the middle of April depending on where and if we got the right amount of rain and sun here in central Texas. We also have other wildflowe that show up near the same time like Indian Paintbrush it changes year to year it is alway fun to see what will show up every spring.

The Texas bluebonnet or lupine was declare a state flower in 1971 by the Texas legislature. Also Lady Bird Johnson help in her push to create the Highway beautification Act which is how wildflowers in Texas took root. We can thank Lady Bird for these beautiful spring wildflowers that are across our highways and park and where ever they may be.

Texas Hill Country Blue Bonnets

Heavenly Texas Hill Country Blue Bonnets – Texas Wildflower Landscapes Canvas and Prints – Remembering this particular year of wildflowers I mean what could be better than the Texas hill country blue bonnets in spring and on this year with what seems to be endless field of flowers before you it hard to beat. Seeing this many bluebonnets in one place can bring out all kind of thing out in a photographer, its like your a kid in a candy store. Muleshoe Park which is an LCRA park along the Colorado river was overrun with bluebonnet wildflower on this particular spring. For us it meant several trips to try and capture these spectacular Texas Hill Country blue bonnetit before they were gone or at least before they were driven over and destroyed by all the cars,trucks and people who showed up for the wildflowers event. I think we arrived in the knick of time and capture this wonderful image just as the sun was setting over this field of bluebonnet wildflowers. Did not hurt that we were able to capture this wonderful sunset with it heavenly glow of orangse and pink colors in the sky with the Texas Hill Country and blue bonnets wildflowers for the perfect day. All you can see in this landscape is a field of endless bluebonnets wildflowers with the saltgrass growing along the bountries in Muleshoe Park. How this happen we are not sure but the area had been under drought condition this year and the water dropped leaving this area exposed again and I guess the seeds had washed into the lake and were sitting just waiting for some sunlight so some good can come out of a drought, who knew. This year was by far the best field of bluebonnets I have ever seen and unfortunately the second year this area at the park did not come back with bluebonnets, but the other side still of the park had enough flowers to satisfiy most. These bluebonnets only lasted till the drought lifted and then they were again covered by waters of the Colorado river and gone. They have never come back like this since only small patches along the waters edge. In my opnion this years crop of bluebonnet which was only around for two year was and is the Best Images of Texas Hill Country Bluebonnets we have ever had the opportunity to photograph. I might be a little bias.
