Texan natives have told us this year that the wildflowers are not as plentiful or showy as usual but we have been delighted by the roadsides. The popular Texas Bluebonnets were abundant.

Can you see why they are called Bluebonnets? I have not had internet access to research all the names of the flowers, but wanted to share some of the beauty.

Our next planned stay was to be a C.O.E. park on Whitney Lake. When friends, Donna and Glenn arrived a day before us, they found the campgrounds nearly full, with only small sites still available. As an alternative, they checked us into the park where Donna’s uncle lives, Lake Whitney RV Park, a combination RV/Mobile home park.

It was not on the lake, as the name implies, but was a comfortable place to park for a week’s visit.

We took a drive around Whitney Lake before leaving the area. The campgrounds, for the most part, have gravel sites, and at least currently, a rather unkempt appearance. The area between lots had not been mowed, and weeds were getting knee-high. Downed limbs from a storm during the week made us glad we had not been parked there as originally planned.
