Springtime in Texas, and a tribute to Boston

I loves springtime in Texas! There are these beeYOUtiful flowers called bluebonnets. They're the state flower of Texas, actually. And during the spring, they just cover the countryside with blue. It's a gawjuss sight. And wherever you see bluebonnets, even if it's on the side of the highway, you'll see Texas parents taking pictures of their kids, skin and fur! It's a Texas tradition. :)  LBR foster Betty Boop is carrying on the tradition proud of strong.

As springtime progresses, I'll share more pics of boxers and bluebonnets! Happy spring!


Momma and I would like to add that our thoughts are with everyone affected by the Boston Marathon bombings. We would like to dwell not on the horror, but on the hope. On all the paramedics, EMT, and first responders who leaped into action when everyone else was still reeling. On the runners who finished the race and kept running all the way to the hospital so they could donate blood. On the people all over the Boston area who published their name and address without a second thought to offer a place for stranded runners to stay.

Out of our darkest hours come our greatest triumphs. There will always be those who try to tear us down, but we are strong and we will never let them win.


  1. YES for SURE... it is always Darkest before the Dawn! Out of Every Bad thing... GOOD things Come. THANK YOU for setting our minds on a Better Path.

  2. We also feel so bad that Boston has to go through this. Mom saw the post with Mr. Rogers and realized she had never read that and thought what wonderful wonderful words!!!

    We love bluebonnets, mom wishes her whole yard was covered with them, instead of ugly creeping charlie.......

  3. I saw this Mr. Rogers posting yesterday too. Very nice. Hope you have a good day there and we definitely enjoyed your flowers this morning.

  4. Mom so loves all those beautiful blue bonnets - so very pretty.

    Yes, a very sad day indeed, but how wonderful to see so many step up and take charge not knowing if they themselves could come under attack by another bomb. It is very gratifying to know that there ARE so many good peeps out there.
