We drove to Uvalde to visit some friends last weekend. We saw bluebonnets along Highway 90. I had to stop and take pictures. While I was taking pictures, a postwoman pulled over and told me where there were some some large fields of bluebonnets.  Enjoy!

The Spanish Dagger I photographed at Fort Inge.  These plants were blooming all around Uvalde.


Spring is Busting Out All Over

These pictures were taken in Louisiana in late February and during the first week of March. At the time, it was snowing just north of Interstate Highway 10, from Texas to Florida.  We seemed to find pockets of sunshine as we traveled from Fontainebleau State Park on Lake Pontchartrain to Lake Fausse Pointe State Park in the Atchafalaya National Heritage Area to Sam Houston Jones State Park just outside of Lake Charles.

I looked up one day and saw buds on all the trees and little flowers bursting out everywhere.  I was amazed as it appeared to happen overnight between cold snaps.
