Let’s talk about blue bonnets. Springtime in Texas and everyone is looking for fields of flowers to take pictures in. Human momma does it; in fact one of her favorite pictures of me is me sitting in blue bonnets looking not impressed.

Want to know why I don’t look impressed? Because I know snakes like blue bonnets and I do not like snakes. We didn’t see any snakes that day but I am always on the lookout for snakes when we go into fields of flowers.

One of my friends got bit by a rattlesnake in some flowers and now he lives at the Rainbow Bridge. We’ve never seen a snake in the flowers and I hope that’s the case for y’all, too.  Just to be on the safe side, know what to do before you head out to the blue bonnets.

Human momma says better to be prepared and never need it than need it and not have the knowledge so figure out what you need to know about snakes, where the closest emergency room is and what to do if a snake does bite before you grab your camera and head out the door.

Be safe and share your blue bonnet pictures with us at the Herald. We love to see what y’all are doing!
