Highway 2008 Near Fossil Rim Wildlife Center ~ Texas
Every March and April in Texas, it becomes a bluebonnet holiday for families, lovers and friends who adore taking photos along the Lone Star highways. The bluebonnets create a lovely scenic backdrop with mixtures of wildflowers, Indian Paint Brushes and hills. There’s about a 2-4 week window to enjoy their blooms!
Ever wonder why we have fields of bluebonnets spread across Texas? We can thank Lady Bird Johnson for this! With her love for beautifying cities and highways, the “Lady Bird’s Bill’, or actual name of ‘Highway Beautification Act’ was passed September 16, 1965. She is known for her famous quote: “Where flowers bloom, so does hope.”
So, to further my photo scoop with these young Texas Longhorns, as I was heading to Fossil Rim Wildlife Center outside of Glen Rose, Texas with my Mother, son and his girlfriend we stopped quite a few times for me to do my photography-thang! If you ever take a road trip with me, have patience! I stop all the time.
We found these 2 guys hanging out on this lovely day eating the field grass and probably enjoying their afternoon delight! You know how cows are, they’ll check you out for a sec, snag another bite, look up and chew while I bet they are wondering what the heck we are staring at!
I caught this photo with a delight pondering if they were having a conversation between themselves. One would say to the other: “Moooooooo Cow!” . And so the story of “moo cow” goes with the hundreds of times my Mother and I laughed when we drove by a field of cows while her poodle had her nose pressed to the window looking out, and she would say “Moooooo Cow!”causing FeFe to bark at the herds as if to say a doggy-friendly-howdy to them!
Moo Cow is still an often used phrase and experience for our family. Try it sometime!
