“If you have only an afternoon, just hop into the car and head south on I45 for some bluebonnet sightings in nearby Ennis. A couple of years ago, they were prolific and spectacular in the Ennis area and all around its small neighbor, Bristol. Never heard of Bristol? According to the Memorial and Biographical History, Bristol was almost our state capital. It missed being chosen as the capital by only one vote in the Texas Legislature.”
You can find Bristol by heading east out of Ennis on Texas hwy 34, and turn north on FM 660. The fields of bluebonnets and wildflowers there can be amazing. Other areas of Texas that are filled with beautiful spring flowers are located in the eastern part of the state near Tyler and in the Hill Country near Austin.
People from around the world travel to Texas each spring just to see the millions of wild bluebonnets in bloom. Since it's winter, I thought it might be nice to see a great old picture taken during the spring in Bristol, Texas.
