When I think of Texas, I think of a state with a lot of big cities. Those include Houston (The biggest City), Austin (the State Capital), Dallas / Ft. Worth, and San Antonio. These are big cities in comparison to other big cities in the United States, but Texas has room for these big cities. Texas is a big state.

Texas is a state in the South Central region of the United States. At 268,596 square miles (695,660 km ), and with more than 30 million residents in 2022, it is the second-largest U.S. state by both area (after Alaska) and population (after California).

The bluebonnet is the state flower of Texas and adopted by legislature in 1901. Named for its color and, it is said, the resemblance of its petal to a woman’s sunbonnet.

It blooms in the early spring and can be readily found in fields and along the roadsides throughout central and south Texas. Scientifically named Lupinus texensis, the bluebonnet is also called buffalo clover, wolf flower, and (by the Mexicans) el conejo.

Texas became an independent nation called the Republic of Texas in 1836. But fending off hostile tribes and Mexican troops was difficult for a small country, and Texas joined the United States in 1845. In 1861 Texas left the Union and rejoined after the Civil War ended in 1870.

The hilly southern and eastern part of the state is called the Gulf Coastal Plains. It includes the Pine Belt, where most of Texas’ commercial timber grows. The Interior Lowlands cover the northeast and have some of the state’s biggest ranches. The Great Plains stretch across the north and west parts of the state, and extend all the way to Canada. Far west is the Basin and Range Province, Texas’ only mountainous region. It’s bordered on the south by the Rio Grande, the river that marks the boundary between the United States and Mexico.

In Texas you might spot black bears, armadillos, coyotescougars, endangered cats called jaguarundis, tiger salamanders, and leopard frogs. And don’t miss the birds! Texas has more species of birds than any other state, including screech owls and hummingbirds. Plant life includes trees such as pinyon pines, Texas mesquite, and cottonwood, plus a wide range of cacti.
