Bluebonnet Trails

Over the Easter weekend we decided to take a little trip to Ennis, Texas about 60 miles south of Plano to see the Bluebonnet Trails the City advertises.

After installing an App we drove to the Field of Dreams, north east of Ennis. The Bluebonnets were starting to bloom, but wasn’t quite dreamy yet. On the way we did see this cool old barn.

We drove to the other side of town to find Bardwell Lake and another Bluebonnet area, but still not many Bluebonnets to be found. Driving back towards town, we looked for another field named Meadow View Nature Area.

Bingo! Still not quite in full bloom, we did find some of the State Flower of Texas and all its glory. The orange flowers are called Indian Paintbrush.

It was a little overcast and very windy, but overall a success.

On to the next adventure, A Tree house!
