Ennis Bluebonnet Trail
Ennis, Texas is a small town, pop. 18,711, located approximately 40 miles south of Dallas in Ellis County. Each year, April 1 – 30, the Ennis Garden Club sponsors the annual Ennis Bluebonnet Trail. In 1997 the Texas Legislature designated Ennis as the home of the “Official Texas Bluebonnet Trail” and was also designated the “Official Bluebonnet City of Texas”. There are 40 miles of Bluebonnet trails and are the oldest of such trails in the state.
The weather this year has been ideal for the Bluebonnets which has created spectacular viewing and photographic opportunities of these gorgeous State Flowers of Texas.
I very recently drove the trails with camera in hand. What a treat to see such beauty spread around the rolling hills of North Texas. I thought I would devote this Blog to the Bluebonnet Trail for those of you who reside in faraway places such as Ruidoso, and Albuquerque, New Mexico, New York, Maine and other locations outside the “Lone Star State”.
