Ennis Bluebonnet Trail

2014.04.11
pixel
Bluebonnets right up to the door of this old building in the small town of Rosser, Tx. Intended to be remodeled into a winery, it didn't quite make it.
pixel
I must have an open door policy because that one wouldn't stop anything. Water tower in the background from an old train station. In fact that was the original use of the building. Again with bluebonnets.
pixel
Water Tower with bluebonnets around the base.
pixel
Down by the watering hole this small herd of cattle is backed by bluebonnets on the hillside.
pixel
These are pretty well all wild fields of bluebonnets. Just acres and acres of them.
pixel
Much of the area was covered with trees, probably mesquite at one time. Now most are dead and parts can be found all over.
pixel
Down the hillside and to the creek.
pixel
A lot of the old wood fences are in pretty bad shape so rather than fix, new fences were put up with metal posts.
pixel
Thank God the bluebonnets are mostly behind fences, or uncaring people wanting that perfect of little Johnny or Jill would have trampled them.
pixel
Another view of the same hillside as above but from about a foot off the ground. Moving the camera a few feet lower makes a difference you wouldn't expect.
pixel
A couple of Indian Paintbrush and a dead broom week added to this one.
pixel
Pastel bluebonnets among the darker usual ones. I've seen this pale blue (first time), pink, and white as well as several different sizes.
pixel
Split field of bluebonnets and Indian paintbrush.
pixel
I immediately thought of another scene from a couple of thousand years ago and a few thousand miles from here.
pixel
Mixed on a hillside.
pixel
The road less traveled. Well less traveled than the one I was on. It just looked like it needed to be recorded for posterity.
pixel
Different version of the same.
pixel
Sorry no bluebonnets but a few hamburger on the hoof.
pixel
Stopped into a church I saw along the way,
got down on my knees and began to pray.

This old church looked very inviting. It was a beautiful old building.
pixel
Lots of bluebonnets around the Ennis,Texas area. There are about 40 miles of bluebonnets around the trails.
