Texans love their bluebonnets, and I can see why. This year, with lots of rain in the Hill Country, we’re enjoying a parade of bluebonnets, though I’ve been told that they can be even better than this.

Bluebonnets are, in fact, in the Lupin family (Lupinis). The Lupinis texenis is the favorite of Texans, though any species of Lupin counts as the state flower.

Here are a couple of pictures of bluebonnets that I took recently:

    Yep, it’s a very good year for wildflowers here in Fort Worth, too. Great pictures.


Thanks for your willingness to make a comment. Note: I do not moderate comments before they are posted, though they are automatically screened for profanities, spam, etc., and sometimes the screening program holds comments for moderation even though they're not offensive. I encourage open dialogue and serious disagreement, and am always willing to learn from my mistakes. I will not delete comments unless they are extraordinarily rude or irrelevant to the topic at hand. You do need to login in order to make a comment, because this cuts down on spam. You are free to use a nickname if you wish. Finally, I will eventually read all comments, but I don't have the time to respond to them on a consistent basis because I've got a few other demands on my time, like my "day job," my family, sleep, etc.
