Trip Date: 4/10/2016
Location: Ennis

Took a trip to Ennis on Sunday and stopped at the large bluebonnet/paintbrush field on Creechville Rd. before driving the North Bluebonnet Trail route that I got from the Ennis website.  The Creechville Rd. field was the best one I found and was beautiful.  I found a few smaller wildflower fields along the North Bluebonnet Trail, but did not find any thick fields of bluebonnets.  I just saw the photo of Lake Bardwell and wish I had known to go there, but it was my first trip to Ennis.  Next year for sure!  I'm not sure there will be much more development in the fields, but felt the drive was worth it due to the Creechville Rd. field.  It is also very scenic around Ennis and the nearby towns.  Unfortunately, the grasses are taking over some of the fields and I also saw the b cabbage along the roads.  We drove partially on Hwy 20 on the way in and noticed many large bluebonnet patches along the highway near Duncanville.  It made for a pretty drive!  I have provided a link to some photos below.

Gayle,

Thanks for the update and link to your photos. I see some really nice shots in your gallery, so it was not all bad.  The Ennis Garden Club does an excellent job of pointing out some of the best routes, but I also try other routes that they might not have on their "tour." 

So if FM 1181 (Creechville RD) is doing well then I will also check Spence RD,  Section House RD, Valek and Hornik RDs.
