All the time and effort that goes into preparing a large meal is remarkable. There are table settings, decorations, centerpieces, the main dish of ham or chicken or some other delicious meat, dozens of delicious side dishes, and a dessert that will keep people talking through the summer… just to name a few details.

While many people love the chance to host and thrive in the midst of the busyness, it’s important to show your appreciation and respect for the busy bee(s) as they create such a marvelous feast.

At Texas Treats, we have gift sets, boxes, and baskets that fit any occasion! Among our versatile, Lonestar goodies we recommend our Taste of the Wild West gift basket for that busy hostess of yours. It’s compiled into a Texas Red/White/Blue metal tub (perfect for keeping drinks cool out on the patio!) and features many tasty indulgences.

The Lady in Blue

As our Yankee neighbors are buried in snow, the Midwest is blanketed in all manner of ice and wintery mess, and even parts of Texas have felt the icy chill of winter, we’re here to say — we’re ready for Spring. Enough is enough, Old Man Winter. It’s time to bow out and make way for our favorite persona of Springtime: The Lady in Blue. Also known as buffalo clover, the wolf flower, or simply: bluebonnets.

Bluebonnet field - labeled for reuseSince 1901, the Bluebonnet has been the official state flower of Texas. It’s been a part of Native American legends, has it’s own theme song, and blankets the Lone Star State starting in late March/early April. However, there is a little bit of a caveat to calling the Bluebonnet the Texas State flower because technically, in 1971 the Texas Legislature named all species of the Bluebonnet as the Texas state flower. With such a wide variety of bluebonnet species in the Lone Star State, Texas essentially has six official state flowers instead of just one!

In keeping with true Texan (and American) pride, this bold flower boasts red, white, and blue bonnets on it’s stems — a testament that this land sows, reaps and inspires patriotism, even with the little flower that speckles the countryside every Spring. And they all count as bluebonnets, regardless of color or size.

Keep your eyes peeled as Spring approaches to see if you can spot these faithful ambassadors of springtime. Remember you can be looking for bluebonnets with red or white bonnets too! Maybe you can start a trend of taking your family photos in a field of white bluebonnets? Why not? They’re still the Texas state flower!
