  1. Lovely! I saw flowers on my walk yesterday ... first of the season.

    1. These were from a visit to Central Texas last spring. We saw them in front of a public library. I've seen lots of bluebonnets, but I had never seen, until then, a "pink bonnet."

  2. And there they are! I love bluebonnets and always look forward to them in the spring. I was afraid that it was going to be a sad year for them with how little moisture we had gotten over the winter. However...they are coming out in my yard, on the highways, everywhere. Hope it's a banner year after the rain last week.

  8. Sort of like an albino bluebonnet. I see them often in central Texas. Can't wait to get down there to see them this year.

    1. I've been in Texas for almost sixty years and I've never seen a pink bluebonnet!

  9. This is what blue bonnets look like? I thought those flowers were lupines on my first glance. They are so pretty.

  10. In all my years in Texas, I never saw a pink bluebonnet either! I miss the thrill of coming upon a vast field of bluebonnets along the side of the roadway. It would take my breath away! Every spring we'd go on a wildflower road trip as a rite of spring. Although where I live now is lovely, I do miss Texas in springtime.

  11. I have to say...I do like the pink bonnets. Is that normal for that plant?
