To paraphrase the margarine jingle: Everything’s better with bluebonnets on it.

It is bluebonnet season in Texas, when the fields are filled with the hue and scent of the state flower. We drove up to Washington-on-the-Brazos today, the original state capital and our favorite bluebonneting place (passing countless acres of them on the way up, interspersed with Indian paintbrushes and other wildflowers).

  1. Going to school in El Paso, I learned all about the state flower. We learned, not one, but at least two songs about bluebonnets: “Bluebonnet, bluebonnet, with your coat so blue. . . .”

    Growing up in El Paso, I’ve never seen a bluebonnet.

  2. “Bluebonnet, bluebonnet, with your coat so blue. . . .”

    EV: we sang it too in Houston schools in the 60s .
