Remember I mentioned bluebonnets in my last post? (here)
Well, I saw even more of them this weekend. Millions more.
And they were gorgeous. Like a carpet of purple flowers spreading as far as the eye could see.
It's no wonder that Texans love them. I do too!
And their smell was simply heavenly.
I didn't expect them to have much of a smell... I guess because I never see bluebonnet scented lotion, or bluebonnet scented soap, or bluebonnet scented candles. But man oh man, there should be!
These bluebonnets were outside of Ennis, Texas. There are "bluebonnet trails"... basically backroads marked with signs for where to see the best flower shows. I love driving backroads (especially gravel roads!) and I love flowers, so this was my kind of trip! My husband isn't really into flowers as much as I am, but even he was impressed with some of the gorgeous views.
Lots of other people were out enjoying the bluebonnets with us, many of them taking photographs, like in the picture below. In the best spots, there were people everywhere! But not so many that it took away from the experience.
I think this just might become a new spring tradition!
