Recently, I asked Sandra Allen, my good friend and co-author of I.O.U. SEX, to take pictures of bluebonnets around her home near Lake Texoma. I hoped to use some of her shots in promoting my book, BLUEBONNETS FOR ELLY. Unfortunately, there wasn't a bumper crop of the state flower in her area this year, but she did get some terrific photos while she was out and about, some of which I've posted below with her permission. (Click on photos to enlarge.)
|Go just about anywhere in Texas and you'll see the state flag displayed.
|Yep, there's really a town named Fink. According to the Texas State Historical Assoc.:
"Fink's population was estimated at twenty-five for most of the period
from the mid-1940s to the mid-1970s." I doubt if it has grown any since then.
|Too bad there weren't many bluebonnets in bloom in Grayson County this spring.
They sure can put on a show when they cover a hillside.
