Bluebonnet Tour

Me and my sister, Valerie, went on a road trip today to Ennis, Texas to see all the Bluebonnet's in full bloom.  Thousands of acres of rolling hills covered in Bluebonnets and Indian paintbrush.  Such beauty and so fragrant.  So fun!

The Bluebonnet is the State Flower of Texas.  Ennis is the "Official Bluebonnet City of Texas" as well as home to the "Official Texas Bluebonnet Trail".   And here are the photos of our day.... (There are a bunch of them)

Nice blend of bluebonnet's and paintbrush

Good Ole' Texas Longhorns

Before moving to Texas I had no idea how beautiful and lush this place is... Tree's and green everywhere.  I really do love my new home!    

If you get the chance to come to Texas during April, the Texas Bluebonnet's are in bloom and are a must see!  They really are everywhere, but Ennis has a huge conglomeration of them.  It was well worth the drive and I look forward to next year!
