Anyone seeking wildflowers in Dallas: this is the PERFECT time for bluebonnet season!
Quick- head out to Ennis this weekend for peak bluebonnet blooms. Fun fact: it’s the Official Bluebonnet City of Texas.
This article is going to be short and sweet so that I can get it out to you guys ASAP so that you can check them out ASAP!
What is the Ennis Bluebonnet Trail? It’s a compilation of locations for bluebonnet viewing in Ennis.
You simply download their app, Ennis Y’all, (works for both ios and Android) and check their map for bluebonnet locations.
Each pin on the map expands into a brief description of what you’ll find there.
And the great thing about the app is it also includes other things to do in Ennis if you want to make a day of it!
Here are some things to know:
- Some locations have picnic benches, so feel free to bring a lunch
- Be careful when walking through the fields- there are some sticks that can get you!
- Don’t pick the bluebonnets- the only time it is okay is on private property with permission from the owner
- Some of the parks have public restrooms- including The Ennis Veterans Memorial Park, Bluebonnet Park, and Minnie McDowall Park
- The trails are open until dark and are free
- If you’re going in peak season, there will be a lot of people there taking photos. The good thing is that the fields are so big that it’s easy to find a spot where no one else is in your pictures!
- The best way to check the status of the blooms is to visit the official site here!
It’s just forty minutes south of Dallas, and just waiting for you to go and take some photos in it’s gorgeous fields!
See you in the fields!
