Sunset Over Bluebonnets

February 17th, 2018

Sunset Over Bluebonnets

Another great Texas Hill Country Sunset over the Bluebonnets. This blueboonets were taken along the Colorado river in the Hill Country at sunset as the sky turn fiery red. The Texas bluebonnets are a variety of blue wildflowers that grow in the State of Texas every spring which are of the genus Lupinus. Originally in 1901 the state declare only one blue bonnet the state flower however, in 1971 the Texas legislature declare that any flower found to be similar to Lupinus be declared the state flower. The name bluebonnet was from the look of the white flower on top that was similar to the bonnet that woman wore on their heads in the pioneering days. The popularity of the blue bonnet grew after Lady Bird Johnson had push the Highway Beautification Act where she encorage everyone to plant native wildflowers along highways in the state. Today you can find wildflowers along many roads in Texas and the Texas Hill County has been known as one of the better places to find them. Bluebonnets love soil that drain wells and you will find them easily growing along the slopping areas along the roads. Of course some years are better than others but you don't have to drive too far into the hill country to find them along the roads. It is almost that time for the bluebonnets to bloom anywhere between the middle of March to the middle of April depending on where and if we got the right amount of rain and sun here in central Texas. We also have other wildflowe that show up near the same time like Indian Paintbrush it changes year to year it is alway fun to see what will show up.

Houston Skyline Sunrise Buffalo Bayou

February 9th, 2018

Houston Skyline Sunrise Buffalo Bayou

Houston is always a fun place to visit, I prefer spring and fall since summer can be quite hot and humid but still plenty to do. I grew up here and have fond memories as a child. Now there is even more to do with the theater district where you can see a play, or a listen to live music, there are museums, and plenty of parks to visit. On this early morning we were able to capture the sun as it came up along the buffalo bayou with the Houston skyline in the background.
