The Texas blue bonnets are blooming once again this spring.

The bluebonnet known as the Texas state flower is a favorite sight for many in Texoma to see each spring.

 The bluebonnet is a native flower to Texas. They actually have a unique story as to how they came to bloom in the state.

"Back in the days when the missionaries were here the priests at the Texas missionaries use to throw the seeds outside of the missionary and people thought for quite a long time that they actually came from Spain but they were always from here but the priests would throw them out as seeds to beautify the chapels," says Master Gardener Intern, Robert Aiken.

Gardeners also say the cold winter likely effected the bloom of the bluebonnets this spring. They may not be as plentiful as normally seen. The type of environment where the flowers bloom.
