Texas bluebells


Last week, I was on assignment near Meridian northwest of Waco. On my way home, I passed by a large patch of blue flowers. I did a doubletake, then I turned around and went back. Could those have been bluebells? Sure enough, I was right! A whole field of Texas bluebells! They were blooming right off Highway 22 behind a fence, not far from the city limits signs (north side of Cranfills Gap). I only saw one more group of them on the road home, and now I can't remember where those were (I'm old). But aren't they just beautiful?

In New York the Highway Department would mow them down. They are beautiful!

Great find! Too bad about the other one that got away.

Yes, Texas bluebells are awesome and rather rare. The other patch was further south on Hwy 22.
