March 27, 2009 – I was wandering around west of Fort Worth, TX looking for fields of bluebonnets that grew as far as the eye could see, not just the familiar patches growing along the highways. Unfortunately I would not find such a place on this balmy day but there was plenty of cow pasture in all directions where new grass and tree growth was revealing signs of spring.
April 7 2010 – The bluebonnets are the most widespread I’ve seen in the Texas Hill Country in the last four years and they are growing everywhere in Marble Falls, TX. The colorful flowers meander beyond the trees to the left on this small corner of a huge homestead off Hwy 281 just north of the Colorado River.
This is one of my favorite shots of this little girl. We wandered out about 100 – 200 yards into the miles and miles of endless poppy blooms in the CA Poppy Reserve. Free spirited, she wandered ahead taking in the expanse of flowers when suddenly, at one point she became concerned about one bee in her neck of the woods. I told her to not worry about it and to look at all the other bees buzzing around her. This was her expression as she realized that she was in a bee’s world… D’oh!!! I love you Chyleise.
