Traditionally, the third week week of April is peak blooming period for bluebonnets in  Texas. This year, Elena and I had a little free time and decided to visit the Ennis, Texas area renown for bluebonnet wild seeding.

About 9 miles north of Ennis, we started our search based on an Internet lead for Sugar Ridge Rd, known for the fantastic hillsides and fields covered in wildflowers. What an adventure, around every curve and crest of each hill, we found a vista filled with bluebonnets and other wild flowers. Nearly all the traffic encountered on the road was like minded folks, driving slow and enjoying each stop along the road.

The day was perfect in temperature, sunshine and clean fragrant air. As you can see, “photo ops” were plentiful.
