Texas Bluebonnets and, errrrr . . . Whitebonnets?

      I was born and raised here in Texas.  My mother taught me to love spring, and one of her favorite reasons was the bluebonnets.  Every April the roadsides are covered in gorgeous wildflowers-- Indian paint brushes, fire wheels, buttercups, and bluebonnets.  In all of my fifty plus years, I have never seen an albino bluebonnet . . . until today.  One of our third graders brought this in for morning “science” time for us all to enjoy.  I though it was absolutely lovely.
