Brenham in the Springtime

The day started out rainy, but soon it became sunny and cool.

The law southeast of the Brazos.

Le Fleurs. Bloobonnets!

A pleasant day for a drive amongst the Bloobonnets.

Ol' houses in Chappell Hill.

A store for us tourists.

Contented cows. At least for now.

A cotton gin. I have no idea what cotton has to do with gin.

A comfy room at the Brenham Holiday Inn Express. We got an upgrade since our room wasn't ready. Sometimes it pays to arrive early!

These guys were more contented after we left.

The Antique Rose Emporium in Independence.

The yellow brick road.

They let the old folks out today.

Hay St. Louis, we got an arch, too!

Roses and other plants for sale in the countryside.

After driving thru all the Bloobonnets, it was time for a picnic lunch at Washington on the Brazos State Park. Here's a picture of the Brazos River in the distance.
