Jellyfish - Texas

Jellyfish

What to do

When stung by a jellyfish, a paste of rubbing alcohol and unseasoned meat tenderizer is recommended. The tenderizer works with the body’s natural proteins to break down the injected poison. As gross and unprofessional as it sounds, human urine also works instantaneously.

Bluebonnet - Texas

Bluebonnet

Texas proud

Bluebonnets in Texas are a major Spring attraction. They grow along many state highways, and are truly spectacular. Bluebonnets typically bloom until the end of May when temperatures get warm. They tend to peak in mid-April.

Blooming along with the bluebonnets are Indian paintbrush, Indian blanket and coreopsis.

Texas Bluebonnet is the state flower of Texas

The bluebonnet is to Texas what the shamrock is to Ireland, the cherry blossom to Japan, the lily to France, the rose to England and the tulip to Holland.
(Historian Jack Maguire)
