Repost: ‘Babies and Bluebonnets’

I’m working on several posts, but sigh life keeps getting in the way. This week was state testing for my kids, and I am spending any free time (that’s not in a car, which is most of the time) on the outside either in my own garden, the school’s garden, or looking for spring birdie migrants. Nothing out-of-the-ordinary, really; it just doesn’t lend to hours sitting at a desk writing for my bloggy peeps.

It’s hard to believe we’ve already been back from our Spring Break to Colorado Springs nearly a month already, two months since the Super Blue Blood moon in January (my last post). We’ve had some wonderful birding and gardening adventures there that have absolutely blown our minds. Maybe one day I’ll get to share it with you. Or maybe not.

In the meantime, enjoy this 2014 post from the archives. It certainly still applies today, as the Bluebonnet is one of the showiest flowers along Texas highways today. Click on the photo to be taken to the blog; there is a short slideshow of my kids (when they were a lot younger) there which requires JavaScript…and probably a desktop computer. Throwing you a nugget. You’re welcome.
