Bluebonnets & Texas BBQ

The bluebonnet is the state flower and Barbecue especially beef brisket is a passion in Texas . Every spring the sides of the highways turn into wild gardens filled with green grass, wild flowers of various colors mainly bluebonnets. Since this is my last spring in Texas I have been literally taking time to smell the flowers and eat the delicious BBQ.

For the next two weeks this is my world. To see the rest of the my world Tuesday posts please click the link.

  9. Do you know what our blue bonnets in Pennsylvania are James? Dandelions : ). I am sure you can't wait to see a whole slew of them when you move here! They are breath taking...or something like that : ).
