Weekend Houston: Bluebonnets and Friends

Bluebonnets of Houston
Bluebonnets of Houston

The beauty of spring appears in the form of native wild flowers like bluebonnets here in Texas. If some happy and energetic faces appear on bluebonnets spread surfaces, the intensity of the beauty increases. One such occasion occurred recently when our friend Yasin invited us to enjoy the bluebonnets near their home and also asked me to take few pictures of them with the flowers showing in the background.

It was a crisp, warm and sunny late morning. We all enjoyed watching that small field of bluebonnets and taking pictures. They said they were happy I got to take their pictures. But, I think I was happier because I enjoyed bluebonnets and captured some beautiful moments and happy personalities. Thank you Yasin, Sadiqa and Abed!

    Hi Indira,

    These pictures are stunning! How is your garden coming along? Did you plant a drumstick tree (munaga chettu?)? I’m looking for more recipes on how to cook it’s nutrition packed leaves. Indira, I’m so glad that you are back to blogging. It’s great to read your posts.

    Ooh bluebonnets…I do miss seeing them as I did when I went to college in Texas. They’re beautiful and the colour reminds me of gokarna flowers in Bombay.

    Recently in April, one of my friends went to a place called Brenham in Tx to enjoy the farms full of blue bonnets and the pictures were so amazing. Just wanted to let you know if you are interested. Your pictures are also really nice.
