Endless Blues in the Hill Country

Endless Blues in the Hill Country - Another great year for bluebonnets in the Texas hill country. You look out and all you see are bluebonnets as fas as the eye can see, my kind of wildflowers. This is Muleshoe Bend Park and we had another good year of Texas bluebonnets along the river edge even though the water is way down it was a good capture of this large field of bluebonnets for 2023. We have been taking photo of the bluebonnets for close to ten years here and the best years are when the water is down. Once the waters return to the colorodo river well the bluebonnets are slim to none at that point. We love to show the water with the blue bonnets so made at least a few captures showing the river or as many call it the lake not actually a lake but you can call it what you want. Texas hill country bluebonnet are special to a lot of people and they come here in droves to see the flowers from across the USA. It almost becomes a little crazy during wildflower season. Muleshoe Bend Park sit along the colorado river partly in Travis county and the other part in Burnet county it is a good size park with almost half of the park having wildflowers. The colorado river flows into the pedernales river from here then into Lake Travis on its way downstream. This years crop of bluebonnet was earlier than most years some speculate because the weather is warmer and we had enough rain in the fall they show up early this year. Normally or at least in the past you do not see bluebonnets here till right around Easter but not this year. Photo © copyright by Bee Creek Photography LLC - Tod Grubbs / Cynthia Hestand.
