Its a Texas Thing

When the pastures are green in the springtime
And the birds are singing their sonnets,
You may look to the hills and the valleys
And they’re covered with lovely Bluebonnets.

Blue is the emblem of loyalty,
They’re as blue as the deep, deep sea,
Their smiling faces bring gladness,
For they bloom for you and for me.

Bluebonnets, so gorgeous and stately,
In your mantle of blue and of green,
In the spring when you’re in your full glory,
You’re the loveliest sight ever seen.

You’re beautiful when you sway in the sunshine,
You look like waves of the sea,
Ah, Texas was wise in her choice of a flow’r,
So we offer our homage to thee.

Bluebonnets, blue lovely Bluebonnets,
More beautiful than all the rest.
Texas chose you for her flower,
And we love you best, Bluebonnets.
- by Julia D. Booth and Lora C. Crockett

I'm jealous! We just got another ten inches of snow here! But we may be moving to Texas this summer. I sure hope so!

Beautiful! I keep telling this baby to hurry up and get here so we can get pictures before the bluebonnets die. :) Looks like you found a great little patch!

Awww how sweet! Love the flower petal headband! We're in AL and it's been warm here too!

Just found your blog and I'm so glad I did!

Hope you're having a great week!
