Along the Bluebonnet Trail

Posted by

At least for now this is the last of this long bluebonnet series, but it was such a great year for them. Help - I'm shooting bluebonnets, and I can't stop! ;-) One or two shots may pop up from time to time later on.

You can keep on shooting Bluebonnets until the Longhorns Come Home as far as I am concerned! These arwe so wonderful,(your images I mean) and I truly NEVER get tired of them because you do such a nice job with them and sprinkle in a "guest star" every now and then :-) Ao as far as I am concerned this series gets a binch of stars for teh Lone Star flower Photographer. We are good...( ) has some tests on Monday so I'll keep you up to speed as soon as I can...I am good :-) <3 dj

PLEASE ... let's have more bluebonnets - i can't get enough of them! i even charted a course through the texas hill country for my planned visit at bluebonnet time ... ;-))

30 Apr 2012 8:10pm

@franz: Thanks, Franz. I'll post more later. I was afraid everyone might be getting tired of them. ;-) I'm glad you are planning a trip to hill country in the sping. Ennis, in East Texas is where the photos this year were taken. I hope you hit it on the perfect year at the right time.
