    After our recent drought, the winter rains brought out the bluebonnets in spades. That is the best picture I have seen this year though.

    Wow! This is amazing. I sent this picture to my cousin who lives in Ennis on a ranch South of town. Now how do I finagle a ride over there next week???

    Please take this as the light humor that it is intended. We do ride Goldwings. If you blitz the Interstate and leave around 5:00 PM on Friday with four gas stops and a loss of an hour of time you could be in Ennis TX by 8 AM Saturday. Ride the Bluebonnets, stay at your brothers, and then head back on Sunday. Total miles 1,800 plus and cost for gas estimated at $270 plus any other non travel expenses. Might be less because I used a fairly high fuel cost estimate.

    If you add a 6 hour stop in Van Horn TX then you'd get in at 2:00 PM and still have plenty of time to ride the fields of spring flowers in Texas. Because it's not only the Bluebonnets, but numerous other spring flowers that sets the fields of West Texas a glow with color each year.

    Again, no critism but you asked the question and I thought I'd give you a solution.

    My sister sent this photo to me via email, our interest being that we were born in Ennis. However, the more I look at it, the more I suspect photo shop editing. Still a nice photo.............
