It's bluebonnet season in Texas.

On our drive to Fort Worth last week to visit our children and grandchildren, we enjoyed the wildflower vignettes along the roadsides.
Sometimes a large standalone patch of bluebonnets, deep blue in color, would make me think we should stop and take a picture.

At other times a mix of bluebonnets, Indian paintbrush, and yellow wildflowers called to me, but I didn't listen.
We kept driving on in anticipation of holding our grandchildren in our arms, enjoying the scenery along the way, but never stopping for photos.
