The official state flower is BLOOMING!

We've had some good rain and are now seeing lots of sunshine and warm temperatures. That has bluebonnets springing up all over the place. Plus, according to University of Texas at Austin’s Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center horticulturists, we're in for a longer wildflower season.

The flower's popular name comes from its resemblance to a sunbonnet, the hats worn by pioneer women. The Texas State Historical Association says that although early explorers failed to mention the bluebonnet in their descriptions of Texas, Indian lore called the flower a gift from the Great Spirit.

Bluebonnets have become a really popular backdrop for family photographs, and we want to see yours.
