Our granddaughter Brooklyn’s dog, Pecos, posing in the bluebonnets.
Our winter has been colder than average in the Texas Hill Country. Bluebonnets germinate in the Fall and grow throughout the Winter. They absolutely love cold weather while they are developing their root systems. While they also need precipitation to sustain themselves, there has been sufficient rain. These plants are very drought resistant. The Willow City Loop has a beautiful show of these stunning wild flowers if you have the time for a road trip.
