When we moved to Texas my first thought was that everything so dry and dull. We moved from Florida where everything was green and lush. And I grew up on a tropical island. It was a big change of scenery for us. To be honest it was one of the hardest times in my life. A big new State, no family, I missed my islands even more. I think the adjustment to Florida was smoother because besides for Hawaii, it was the next best thing. But Texas is the complete opposite of what I was used to.
And then Spring came and suddenly these blue patches of flowers were exploding along the highway. Everywhere we went, they were popping up. I kept seeing people pulled over on the side of the road taking pictures. At first I was so confused, but once they were in full bloom, I was blown away. A friend once told me that her favorite part of living in Texas was drives during the spring. Now I know why.
Since then, every year I look forward to Spring and all the beauty that comes with it. And all the stopped cars along the side of the highway no longer phase me! I prefer to find the patches that are not on major highways. There used to be a patch close to the house. Last year we found a great one, in a friends community. No wonder its the state flower! One bluebonnet is pretty, a whole field, is just breathtaking.
This year's Bluebonnets have come and gone. Why can't they stay longer? A few weeks is simply not long enough!
But thanks to Purex and HEB, for a limited time, you can show your Texas Pride and tackle your Texas sized laundry piles (yall have those too right?) with the new Purex Fresh Bluebonnet Detergent.
Because it's a Texas thing, you know the bottle is big. At 150 oz you should be able to get 100 loads done. I think what I loved most about this detergent is it doesn't have a over "flowery" scent. It's just the right mix of floral and clean. And after a day of running around and exploring another park, its Dirt Lift Action took care of the grass stains on a pair of jeans and left our laundry smelling great!
You know how I'm always saying Texas celebrates EVERYTHING! You guessed it! There is a Bluebonnet Festival and even a Bluebonnet Sighting Facebook Page. During the month of April you can visit Ennis Texas and drive 40 miles though the Bluebonnet Trails.
