The Legend of the Bluebonnet & Best Spots For Pictures

Bluebonnets are SO Texas.

Seeing bluebonnets has made me happy since I was a little girl.  And I know I’m not the only one.  We screech when we see them for the first time every year.  It’s like seeing snow, but a lot warmer.

I remember reading about the The Legend of the Bluebonnet in grammar school.  I liked that it was a girl who saved the village.  And I reasoned that she looked a lot like me.

I remember thinking that she was “much braver than I am”… certainly less selfish.  I didn’t know if I would have the character to make the sacrifice.  I was glad I didn’t have to make that call.

There is again this reoccurring theme of conflict within humans.  We want to be noble, but be also want to be selfish.  I’m exploring CS Lewis’ Mere Christianity via video and it’s pretty compelling stuff.

And then go take some pictures.

So… The Legend of the Bluebonnet.  You can pick up the book on Amazon here or watch the coffee table (don’t drink coffee) version in the attached video.  I suggest both.

If you live in Texas or are coming through during bluebonnet season, here are a few “best spots” for bluebonnet pictures, though my personal favorite is my alma mater, St. Edward’s University.

Thanks for reading and watching.  🙂  Let me know what you’re thinking in the comments below.
