This was our first visit and did not know what to expect. We had such a good time and learned so much about the flowers, grasses and trees in this beautiful pasture.

Blue Bonnets are hard to predict. One year you'll have a field full of them and the next that field will be brown and dead. If you're going to go try to photograph these flowers be patient and try to find some off the beaten path places. Otherwise you will be swamped by crowds. Just be cautious of No Trespassing... More
