Wildflowers Thrive in Blistering Texas Heat

Here in North Texas we have just ended our 31st day in a row of over 100° temperatures with no end in sight.  It’s hot, it’s dry – it is blistering!  But every morning for the last week or so I have noticed a field near our house covered in beautiful Texas Bluebells.

This morning I decided to photograph them while the temperature was under 90° – at 6:45 am.

I am amazed at this tough, beautiful flower thriving in the brutal Texas heat. We are experiencing a serious drought, have a burn ban in effect and the grasses and other vegetation are parched.  The earth is literally cracked:

Yet these amazing wildflowers survive and are beautiful.
On the way back to the house I saw a rabbit.  Stopped to take a quick picture and later, when I looked at it on the computer, I noticed the baby rabbit just to the right hanging out with his momma:

This is most appropriate since it is the first of the month!  Rabbits!  Check my July 1 blog about Rabbits if you wonder what the heck I’m talking about.

Keep cool, y’all!
