One of my favorite places to be in the springtime is the hill country of Texas. Thanks to the efforts of Lady Bird Johnson, wildflowers paint the roadsides. First starting with the Texas state flower, the bluebonnet.
Also known as the Lupinus texensis or Texas lupine, the flower is generally a deep and vibrant indigo blue indicative of the state itself. Similar varieties are found in other places, and I was pleases as punch to have my first glance this season at a bloom near Tucson earlier in the month.
Blooms on different years vary depending on climate – and this spring, we hit the jackpot for wildflowers. With lots of rain this winter, they’re springing up right before our eyes.
