Country Distancing

Willow City Loop Texas

2020-04-01

A few days ago we took a ride out to see the bluebonnets. We had planted about a pound of seeds in our yard, but they are still looking pretty skimpy. Willow City Loop is in the Hill Country just north of Fredericksburg Texas. It has just the right soil conditions so the bluebonnet flowers are always tall and lush and beautiful.

This year the bluebonnets did not disappoint.

The loop takes a few hours to drive with frequent stops to photograph.

Even in stormy weather there is always something interesting to photograph
Some downed trees can make an interesting subject.

We had a wonderful break from our self isolation. We saw very few other cars, but in the late morning more started to drive the loop. On the way home we even stopped to pick a few bluebonnets to press for our business at www.flowersinglass.com which, like all other non-essential business’, has been shut down except for some mail orders. Hopefully, we will be able to start doing art & craft shows in the fall. In the mean-time I could get used top this retirement thing!
