The bluebonnets and blue skies are all over Central Texas now, so why not take some photos to share. 🙂
The Copperfield Nature Trail is about 3.5 miles of trail that runs along Walnut Creek on the East side of I35 in Austin. I started from Copperfield Park, and followed the trail as it bends along the Creek side. This trail is embedded in a few neighborhoods, so expect some street noise as you hike. This makes for a nice walk after work and before the sun sets.
The bluebonnet fields were cool. The views of downtown from St. Edward’s University were nice. But the ladybugs posing for photos were by far the best.
This is an awesome time in Central Texas. The wildflowers are beginning to pop up. This groovy patch can be found at Park Hills Baptist Church, and there is also a nice view of downtown Austin from this site. Have fun if you go, and beware of the traffic on the nearby road. 🙂
I took it easy today. There was a nice walk through Old Settlers Park with soccer fields, model airplanes, and bluebonnet fields.
Oh my! This field was so beautiful! I tiptoed around the edges, making sure not to squash any wildflowers. When I found a plant that was photo worthy, I dropped to the ground and put my little camera to work, getting grass stains on my knees. No flowers were harmed during the process. Then the sun began to fall in behind everything as the breezes started to die down. Bluebonnets are groovy, but the Indian Paintbrushes in this field were the best. Not to mention the friendly ladybug. 🙂
