Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: The Texas Bluebonnet - Pictures

The Texas Bluebonnet - Pictures

Every year in April, the Texas Bluebonnet, Texas' official state flower, makes an appearance. Sometimes they only last a couple of weeks. This year, with the nice weather and decent amount of rain, they've lasted almost 4 weeks already. And even though they're called a "blue" bonnet, they're actually more purple than blue.

April is the time to scramble and get all your family pictures taken.  Here are some pictures of me and Alyssa in the field of Bluebonnets at Steiner Ranch in Austin TX.

The photos are beautiful. We dont have as much as we like up here in the Frisco area.... Perhaps not enough rain?

Ted, She's only 2 and I already find myself looking at her "baby" pictures all the time.

Barb, Thank you!

Loreena, I think you guys had more rain (and snow) then we did...

Craig, Thanks!

Hi Donna... I love the bluebonnets.  When I was living in NYC for a few years it was one of the seasonal things I missed about our state.  

Posted by Steve Shatsky almost 10 years ago

Thats a GREAT picture of the two of you, Donna. There were so many people out when the BlueBonnets first showed up this season. Thanks for sharing these great pictures with us.

Some really great pictures.  The red trunk works well with the bluebonnets.

Posted by Richard Weeks, REALTORĀ®, Broker almost 10 years ago

Hello Donna - Those are great pictures.  I'm sad to say that a broken camera and busy schedules caused us to miss them this year.
