I’ve been wanting to share a few of my favorite photos that we took on a little excursion to my best friend’s dad’s property a few weeks ago. If you’re not from Texas, you probably don’t know about Bluebonnet season. I certainly didn’t before we moved here, but it’s definitely a Texan’s rite of passage.
In early spring, these gorgeous flowers begin to bloom in big crops all over the roadsides and open fields. There’s a pervasive urban legend that it’s illegal to pick them, as they are the state flower of Texas, but I think that was started more to preserve the beautiful fields of them here and there. There aren’t many to be found in the public green spaces in our town, so I was excited to be invited along for a little Bluebonnet photo shoot out in the country.
The field was fantastically green, and the sun was so bright and shining. It was just a gorgeous day to take some pictures. Luca was in school, but seeing as how we’d just ordered Spring school pics for him, I thought it was alright to just take Isla by herself.
I think the one about halfway down where she’s sticking her tongue out just a little is my favorite! And of course the last one…but there aren’t any bluebonnets in it. Oh well, it’s still a sweet pic!
Fellow Texans–feel free to share one of your favorite Bluebonnet pics with me in the comments–I’d love to see! Non-Texans–what’s your favorite springtime place for outdoor pics? Are there any traditions in your locale? I’d love to hear about them!
