Also see the March 23th update from the Brenham wildflower watch (  ). The last week of March is usually the peak time for Brenham, so perhaps there will be nice Easter bluebonnet locations. The Brenham report has listings of bluebonnet locations with safe access including a church that has graciously provided a port-a-potty. Perhaps, a donation to that church is in order if you visit and take photos there?

Ennis Area:
