Few sights portray the heart of Texas more poetically than swaths of blooming bluebonnets sparkling in the spring sunlight in Texas Hill Country. Those lucky enough to witness a mass of bluebonnets in full bloom are left with a complete understanding of why Texans chose bluebonnets to be their state flower. One of the best locations to see Texas bluebonnets in bloom is the area surrounding the Burnet County community of Marble Falls.
