It’s the end of March of 2014 and the environment around us has definitely changed. Obviously the climate has gone from low temperatures such as 46 (F) degrees when I wrote my first blog the month of January, to higher temperatures that hit around 75 degrees (F). As I spent my hour in Blunn Creek, I decided to take a few pictures to compare them to the pictures that were uploaded to my January post. Not only were the pictures a lot more green this time, but it was impressive to see the variety of plant life in Blunn Creek. The majority of the flowers I encountered were the state’s flower, the bluebonnet. Named for its color and, it is said, the resemblance of its petal to a woman’s sunbonnet, the bluebonnet is the state flower of Texas. It blooms in the early spring and can be readily found in fields and along the roadsides throughout Central and South Texas. Below are the pictures taken during March.
