Bluebonnets

Sure, bluebonnets are a Texas cliche, but I like 'em anyway. I mentioned that the roadsides and fields near Navasota were covered with them, but I didn't take any pictures. However, someone here in Alvin really likes them and has a front lawn covered with them. It looks cool, and there's no lawn mowing until the flowers all die. (Click on the pic for the full-screen version.)

Cliche or not, they're gorgeous. Can any flower really be a cliche? Our mustard (Southern California) is in bloom, yellow lace all over the hills, and there's some dark, dusky wild lilac, but that's never very prominent. You have to look carefully to see it.

Damn, I'm really homesick right now.
