Buttprints in the bluebonnets April 13, 2007Posted by daveintexas in Current Events, Texas.
One of my favorite things about Texas is the spring flowers, particularly bluebonnets. They are in full bloom now, and they’re just beautiful. I’ll get out this weekend and take a few shots to add to this post – if you’ve never seen them, they are lovely.
A favorite thing to do here in the Lone Star State, taking pictures of your kids sitting in a field of bluebonnets. Almost all parents do it, if they get the chance, and it does make a really cute photo of the little ones. I believe I have one here myself from a while back – let’s see….
Awwwwww. Aren’t they cute?
I didn’t make this particular outing. If I had, I would have brought the .45 and a big stick. Because in the spring time in Texas, there are other things among the bluebonnets. Like this:
Yep. They come out when it starts gettin warm. This time of year, they’re a little slow and easy to piss off. So if you’re going out for the photo shoot, use the stick, make a lot of noise and give them a chance to leave. They’ll take it. They don’t want to be around you any more than you want to be around them.
Just be careful moms and dads.

Oh, watch out for fire ants too.
