Time once again for Wordless Wednesday, one of my favorite events hosted by Dixie at French Lique, Texas. If you haven't been to French Lique, pay a visit at http://frenchlique.blogspot.com/ You'll be glad you did. The word for this week is friends.
Now make sure you go visit Dixie to see all the other posts for this week!
Wednesday is here again, which means it's Outdoor Wednesday, graciously hosted by Susan at A Southern Daydreamer. It's so much fun to share our outdoor scenes, whether they be in our yards, our favorite vacation spot or any other outdoor space. Be sure to visit Susan at http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com/ to see everyone's outdoor photos for the week.
Do you know what this is? If you are from Texas you do! This is the absolute, positive, undeniable proof that Spring is here! This is my first bluebonnet sighting of the year. I was so excited to see this, and I didn't even have to risk life and limb on the highway access road to get this picture - these were springing up in a lawn 2 blocks from my house.
Bluebonnets grow in profusion along the highways and backroads alike, all over Texas. We have Lady Bird Johnson to thank for spurring interest in highway beautification, and the fruits of her labor can be seen all over our state. This year is probably not going to be a banner year due to our ongoing drought, but these hardy flowers usually find a way to bloom somewhere!
Hope you enjoyed a true sign of spring here in Texas. Now jump on over to Susan's to see what everyone else is sharing.
