04-14-2009 lupinus texensis


The Blubonnet, is a legacy of Lady Bird Johnson, who persuaded our State government to seed the native flower along highways throughout the state. Normally, the bright blue lupine can be found easily in March & April, but South Central Texas has been in a persistent drought. As a result, our state flower has not bloomed in all it’s splendor this year.

I did find a small congregation along FM 965 near Crabapple Creek, where I joyously captured this image…

  1. Nice that you found such a photogenic bunch of flowers. I especially like the backlit quality of this shot. The bright greens complement the blues. An effective image.
