Re: Texas bluebonnets

Wow - very cool aunt! 84? It wasn't that warm here?? Stttrrraaange
weather this year. Mmmm mmm mmm. Yes, they are a sight to see - whole
roadsides and fields covered w/ them. Hope they kick in by weekend after
next so Jesse and the girls get to see the show when they come down for
Ya-Ya weekend. I have to be very careful driving home from work or I
spend to much time looking at them and not the road!! :-)

>> My friends! For those of you not fortunate enough to live in Texas (I
>> can see your eyes rolling now), let me tell you the bluebonnets have
>> begun to bloom.
>> Pat's are bigger and have more blooms because she has sandier soil which
>> they love. But even in my amended clay - they have started to bloom. In
>> a week or two, the roadsides will be rife w/ them! Just in time for
>> Jesse's visit, may be one of the few things she misses about Texas. And
>> when they are blooming alongside blue anemone blanda, ipheions, Siberian
>> squill, grape hyacinths and vinca - well it's a beautiful blue symphony.
>> None of those flowers are large, as you know, but the different shades
>> are quite lovely and complement each other beautifully. How blessed we
>> are to know such beauty, even when it comes w/ the tariff of an aching
>> back. It's all worth it. I will try to get some pictures when everything
>> is "peaking". Now I'm off to get another glass of back medicine (spelled
>> Merlot) but just close your eyes and envision it!
>> blessings to you all!
