Spring is winding down here in Texas, with the summer heat soon to drive us indoors into the refuge of our air-conditioned, climate controlled environments. But before this happens comes the season Blue Bells. Just like the Heather cover the hills of Scotland each Sept with luscious purples, here in Texas we are graced with a month of wild flowers of vivid blue, orange, yellow and pink dotting the fields and road ways in March-April. I was able to take a road trip with a friend Sylvia (fellow PhD survivor from Edinburgh who now living in Houston) to see them in full bloom. Here are a few pics from our day along the winding roads in East Texas.
