State Flower Found!

Anyone seen this? It's the state flower for the greatest state in the nation: The Texas Bluebonnet. As a child, I knew it was spring because I would see fields and fields of these blue beauties bloomin'. (whew! Say THAT 3 times!) They were everywhere; along the highways, in the yards, beside the buildings, in the pastures. We would stop and look at them... not pick them mind you... just look. And I loved spring. Now, I'm lucky if I can find one. This year, I did find one. ONE. In my front yard. Bloomin' all on it's own. Makin' a statement. Bold. Strong. Independent. True. Spring is here. Time to grow!
Anyone care to join me?
