Reflection's Flora and Fauna
A collection of my photos of flora and fauna, and maybe now and then,
something else that catches my attention and just will not let go.
Maybe even with little verbage, which is pretty hard for this gal.

Texas Blue Bonnets

Texas Blue Bonnets, a fence and a bee.  Does it get much better than this??

From Reflection's archives.  Taken near Fredericksburg, Texas.  If you have not been, YOU MUST!!

We don't have these around here, darn. Been to Fredericksburg, took a tour of the lovely old German homes (I was stationed at Ft. Sam Houston), and wasn't into flowers then. Blue is nice too. They look like small lupines.

Barbara, believe it is Lupinus texensis. Wikipedia says, "They typically grow about 0.3 m (1 ft) tall."

Ha, I thought things were always bigger in Texas! I've seen photos of them in fields with maybe thousands of plants...they put on a great show.
