Default The Bluebonnets Are Out

Not quite as spectacular as they were last year, but they were early in 2012. Peak-time is still a couple of weeks out, but the drive down to Ennis still yielded a couple of note-worthy stops in-spite of the 30+ MPH winds..

.......the rain and now warm days this week will get them popping real quick now. The last of these looks nearly identical to the one we saw at AOTG that was cropped pano.

Marcelo, certainly the shots are great ... but must give the credit to Greg for these.

LOL... I'm sorry Greg and Bob, yesterday I can't sleep and I'm so tired that I didn't pay attention who posted the pictures.

Definitively the sharpening Greg apply to his pictures is his signature.

Regards.

Marcelo

That's OK....I've definitely been called worse than Bob

Those yellow plants are actually not native to Texas. There was a story on them last year in the news. Can't remember what it is called, but they grow so tall they choke bluebonnets out due to lack of light. Down around Ennis in some areas along the highway where bluebonnets used to grow, it's thick with these yellow plants.

......the yellow flowering plant is Mediterranean Mustard, a real problem for sure for the Bluebonnet & Indian Paintbrush or any of our other low growing wild plants. Like the Zebra mussel the Mustard can't be controlled now.
