Honey bees and Bluebonnets

I moved to Texas from Europe in the late eighties.  I didn’t take it well.  I thought for sure I was being punished for some unspoken transgression.

Then the bluebonnets bloomed and I knew I had come home.

The bee and the bluebonnet

I’m as busy as a bee in a bluebonnet field, working to win Camp NaNoWriMo.

I can see the finish line dancing on the horizon.

‘Tis the season

Springtime in Texas can mean only one thing:

Bluebonnets!

Enjoy.

Taciturn Thursday

I don’t have much to say today, but I thought I would share a couple more of my photos from this weekend’s romp through the Bluebonnet field.  I’m still trying to figure out the new camera and all that goes with taking a decent photograph.  I think these came out pretty good.  Enjoy.

I love finding a splash of red in a sea of blue.  This one reminds me of some of my favorite Impressionist paintings.

Springtime in Texas

This weekend was gorgeous – warm, sunny, and windless.  Springtime perfection.  So perfect, in fact, that for the first time in my life I had the desire to be one of those people who plops their kids down in the middle of a field of Texas Bluebonnets and snaps lots and lots of pictures.

Here are some of the results:
