And it is no wonder why. After wet winters like the one we just had, Texas roadsides and countrysides are covered in shades of blue this time of year.
I unfortunately did not get around to planting my own bluebonnet wildflower seeds last fall, but still ended up with a garden full of bluebonnets this year.
How, you may ask? Well, turns out that the soil we had delivered from The Natural Gardener last year to fill the new backyard garden beds had a nice little surprise added.
I was pleasantly surprised to see the bluebonnet rosettes appear over the winter, and now I'm enjoying their sprinkling of royal blue throughout the garden.
I'm hoping next year there is an even bigger showing after this first round of flowers drops their seeds (assuming we get a decent rain next winter).
