The Texas State Flower - Bluebonnet

The Bluebonnet is the Texas State flower, named so for its color and the resemblance of its petal to a woman's sunbonnet. These flowers smell so beautifully sweet. They bloom in the early spring, you can see them all over the state along the roadsides throughout the state. We drove out to Ennis, TX, it's about 75 miles from Fort Worth. It was nice to get out of town even for a few hours. It was a beautiful drive. They have 4 trails that you can drive, enjoy the Bluebonnets, and take as many photographs as you like. Some of the farms have electrified fences so watch out! Jeremy found that out the "hot" way, Ouch!

If you get a chance get out there and enjoy the flowers while they're in bloom.
