Texas Bluebonnets

We had a wonderful week near Austin, TX.  Our friends, Bob and Mary, from CA invited us to join them at their time share when the bluebonnets were blooming.  We did pick the right week.
This is one of my favorites

I did not know what the Texas bluebonnets were until I looked it up online after Bob and Mary asked us to join them.  We did a lot of sight seeing also.  One day we spent in San Antonio and went to the Alamo and walked the river walk.

We also visited the LBJ boyhood home, the LBJ ranch and home where he was born.  We went to the LBJ library in Austin, too.  We visited the capitol building one day in Austin.  We drove over to Fredricksburg.   We enjoyed all the flowers we saw in bloom through out our time there.

I think this was called a prickly poppy.
