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.
