We have guests!

What do you think of pop-in guests? The kind that sort of just show up, and before you know it, they've invited a few more to join them? Kind of like college students home for break?

We girls have guests like that right now. They predictably pop-in around this time of year, but you never know how many there will be, or how long they will stay.

Never matters. They are always welcome, as many as want to come, and they are welcome to stay as long as they want! They are the best guests ever. Don’t need much of anything, and they don’t even mind if you kind of neglect them while they’re here. We’ve sometimes walked all over them and they don’t seem to mind. They never complain and usually come back every year, perfectly happy with the same accommodations we had for them last year.

Meet Rusted Gingham's Spring guests, the Texas Bluebonnets, and a few others they invited to come along with them this year.


They are brilliant and inspiring and just beg you to get right in the middle of them and stay a while. And yes, they really are this blue!

My girls love to find all the blankets of color and then take off running.


We have several fields near us that are just beautiful this year.


This is what my girls look like after visiting with the Texas Bluebonnets!


These are near our home in La Vernia. Where else have you seen Texas Bluebonnets this Spring? Leave a comment if you’ve found a favorite patch – tell us where it is - and maybe the rest of us can go pop-in and see them.
