March 25, 2023

Galvanized by bands of bluebonnets (Lupinus texensis) coloring Austin’s city roads, I drove east Thursday morning to wander the filth roads of Business, an iceberg of about 273 individuals. There I discovered farms in rolling fields of denim blue.

Bluebonnets are displaying off this spring, blooming a number of weeks forward of schedule and in abundance due to winter rains, not less than round Austin and east and south. I do not know if the Hill Nation west of Austin has turned blue but. If anybody studying this has a latest report, please share.

I had by no means been to Business, but it surely did not disappoint. The bluebonnets alongside its again roads are grand now.

Different wildflowers look lovely too.
