"Spring has returned. The earth is like a child that knows poems. "
"Rainer Maria Rilke"
Spring in Texas means Bluebonnets (and lots of cyclists on the rural roads preparing for the MS150, the annual ride from Houston to Austin). It is a big tradition to go out to get bluebonnets pictures and welcome the coming of Spring. Although we've been living here 5 years, Gretchen and I have never done that before. This year, we made sure that we did. Seas of blue, yellow and rose on the side of the road were surely welcomed after an unusually cold winter by Texas standards.
