Head for the Hills
Towards the end of March, the fields of Texas start to glow with the bright iridescent green of spring. A few weeks later, the green is joined by a deep cerulean blue and a fiery red, as pockets of bluebonnets, the beloved state flower of Texas, and Indian paintbrushes bloom. Texans have a special love for their bluebonnets, and as you drive along the highways during bluebonnet season, you’ll occasionally see a family taking a portrait in one of the fluffy blue patches (though carefully, as to pick the state flower is illegal). The drive from Austin north on 71 towards Marble Falls is a beautiful drive during the other seasons of the year too.
