Spring in Texas is about wildflowers, especially bluebonnets. Lady Bird Johnson is responsible for the planting of wildflowers along all our highways and that spring bloom makes driving a delight. In the Texas Hill Country there are field after field of bluebonnets. In small plantings, the scent of bluebonnets is not noticeable. However, the smell of the large fields is quite heavenly. Families plop their children down in the fields and take their holiday card photos. We have a photo of our daughter and my husband in one such field that we treasure.
