"Those Texas bluebonnets, how sweetly they grow...

,..Over all the wide prairie, they're scattered like snow
They make all the meadows as blue as the skies
Reminding me of my little darlin's blue eyes."

--Laurie Lewis

In Houston, we've paved the prairies, so the bluebonnets are scattered along the bayou, near my house, and in Mason Park.

Also coreopsis is scattered among the bluebonnets.

Vilma and I went to check them out, because we helped to plant them in October.

I also planted some wildflower seeds last October in my front yard.  It turned out that there were no bluebonnets in the mix, but there are some pretty red flowers blooming. I'll photograph them today.
