Where I stayed
when you think about Texas but for those in the know then Spring in the Hill
country (area around Austin) becomes a sea of blue and red and yellow. The Texas
national flower the bluebonnet can be seen along every roadside and every self
respecting Texan family has a picture of said self respecting family amongst the blue
bonnets. Don't get me wrong - it may be one of Texas best kept secrets but it
is big business, there is even a bluebonnet hotline that lets you know where
the best sightings have been in the last few days.
I love wildflowers, so it was a must on our things to do list and we weren’t disappointed (well I wasn't)
Sorry about the cheesy photos that follow but if you can't beat 'em joing 'em.
