Thanks to Purex® and #SocialInsiders for providing me with some #PurexFreshBluebonnet to enjoy and share with my readers. All opinions expressed here are my own.
One of the first things that come to mind when I think about Texas in the springtime, is bluebonnets. These lovely wildflowers are a symbol of this wonderful state in which I live. It is almost a rite of passage in Texas to get a photo of yourself (or your kids) in a field of bluebonnets.
Finding a patch of bluebonnets in Houston isn’t easy, but several years ago a friend and I drove past a lovely patch on our way back from San Marcos, so we had a little photo shoot. This is still one of my favorite previous Facebook profile photos.
This year, when my mom visited, we tried to get some photos taken with the Toddler in a small patch of bluebonnets at Rob Fleming Park. This particular park in the Woodlands is great because it has a roped-off area to allow these wildflowers to bloom. The patches of flowers wasn’t very thick, though, and the Toddler wouldn’t sit still. Maybe we will have better luck next spring. Either way, we tried to get bluebonnet photos with our baby, and that is what counts.
There’s just something magical and nostalgic about bluebonnets, so I was excited to learn that Purex® has created a limited-time detergent with a bluebonnet scent! I’m an instant fan of any special Texas-edition product!
The fragrance is quite lovely, and I got to enjoy it while doing a recent load of laundry. Of course, it would be great if the clothes came out of the dryer still fragrant, but I can at least get to breathe in the fragrance of bluebonnets while adding detergent to the wash. Anything to make the laundry chore more pleasant, right? Wash out the food stains from my Toddler’s clothing and smell the flowers? That’s great combination in my book.
Would you like to get your own bluebonnet-scented detergent? I’ve got a couple of vouchers to give away! This voucher will get you a free 150 oz Purex® Fresh Bluebonnets detergent at a participating Texas HEB® stores until the end of May 2016.
How do you show your Texas pride?
