After spending most of the day Saturday driving over Dams and bridges, looking for professed sightings of bluebonnets all over the place, Grandma J, JJ and Phillip Johnny Bob finally went
On Sunday, it was off again. I mean really, just because we haven't had rain in months, and just because wildflowers need to wet their whistles, doesn't mean Central Texas can't have some bluebonnets, does it?
With dry winds blowing at up to 40 miles per hour, and terrible wild fires off to the west and southwest, Grandma J continued her quest.
There were plenty of bluebonnets at Old Settlers Park in Round Rock TX. As you can imagine, there were tons of peoplethere. Lots of kids running around, several families taking pictures, and some of them had professional photographers with them. Two young ladies were in wedding dresses. JJ couldn't wait to join the par.tay!
Much to JJ's dismay, Grandma J moved on, and found a patch of Bluebonnets on a slope away from the crowds. She drove her car up the hill because it was quite a ways from the narrow park road, which is probably why no one was there.
Note to Santa, please a really decent camera would be nice....in this lifetime!
