My Little Corner Of The World!


Ennis, Texas is the bluebonnet capitol of Texas, and it just so happens,
that I live on one of the Bluebonnet Trails.
Every year, visitors from all over, converge on Ennis
for photo ops of the bluebonnets.
They bring wicker chairs and other props just to have
their photos taken in the flowers.

For the last two weeks I've had lookie-lous pulling
into my drive, photographing each other in our flowers.

Isn't it funny, I have these flowers every year and a host of several others.
I pick them, make my table pretty with them, watch our bees collect their pollen,
but mostly take them for granted.

So here you have it, bluebonnet photos without the fuel cost!
Fluffy and Red say "we love our bluebonnets".

Till next time,
stop, and really see what you have,

I am not familiar with the bluebonnet.If I have ever had one, it was unbeknowns to me.I will do some research on them.I may even try growing one. I brought home a wild flower growing on the side of the highway 30 plus years ago, and now they have taken the place. We mow them like grass,but the ones that do escape the mowers, are a sight to behold.I think it's called a type of primrose.They are light pink to white, depending on the soil.Blue would be a welcome addition to my flower garden.

It's funny how we can take things for granted that other people travel miles to see - for me in Australia I think it's kangaroos & koalas that I take for granted!
