Texas Bluebonnets with my D3500
2

Texas designated the bluebonnet as the official state flower in 1901. In 1997, the Texas State Legislature designated Ennis, Texas as the home of the "Official Texas Bluebonnet Trail" and also designated Ennis as the "Official Bluebonnet City of Texas". Each year, from April 1-30, Ennis showcases over 40 miles of mapped driving Bluebonnet Trails sponsored by the Ennis Garden Club.

Since moving to Texas several years ago, I've planned (and failed) to go down to Ennis in April to see the annual display of color. Yesterday, I decided that, since I'm not getting any younger, I best get off my butt and do it. Here are a few shots from today. The first two were taken using an AF-P DX 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED VR lens.

The panorama below was stitched from several images use Microsoft's Image Composite Editor. It is representative of multiple fields and roadside areas filled with blossoms.

Those are lovely. We don't have bluebonnets in England, and the first time I ever heard of them was listening to the late Dawn Sears singing with The Time Jumpers -

Tell those old bluebonnets not to bloom till I get home
