Every year here in Texas, families flock to the hill country — or wherever is nearest to fields of bluebonnets — to take advantage of the colorful natural background for household photo frames. Early April is the time when Indian Paintbrush, Texas Bluebonnet, and Evening Primrose are in full bloom, and we in the Houston area head a few miles west and a little north of high pressure to enjoy the beauty, fly kites, and watch babies taste flower petals for the first time.
Digging back into the digital archives, I am reminded of those “maintenance” days, and actually miss when my life was just wake, feed, clean, feed again, clean, clean some more, feed one last time, and lastly, crash when head meets pillow, repeat.
Don’t get me wrong. I don’t not-enjoy the busy-ness that is today’s appointments, school assignments, enrollments, and other commitments (squeezed in with feed-clean-feed-clean cycle). I do, I really do. But the Days of Babies in many ways was just purer…simpler.
God Bless the babies who make us enjoy the more important things in life and for wildflowers that slow us down just a bit.
What are your favorite wildflowers?
Are you slowing down for spring? Or speeding up?
