As I was jogging through our neighboring master-planned community last Sunday, I couldn’t help but miss all the flora that typically distracts me during a long run. February freezes killed off plenty of plants, making the landscape seem desolate. I almost was feeling depressed . . . until I spied a bit of blue mixed in with the green and brown.
Bluebonnets! Texas’ beautiful state flower decided to make an early appearance. There only were a few of them, but that really didn’t matter. Just seeing my favorite wildflower made me smile. What a wonderful surprise!
As I Weebled further down the walking trail, I saw a couple small patches of wildflowers. How great was that? It just made my day.
I love seeing wildflowers when I’m trying not to crater during a nine-mile run. They make me stop thinking about how much my legs hurt and start focusing on one important thing:
Spring is almost here!
