Bluebonnets in bloom

Texas Bluebonnet

When I first came to Texas 12 years ago, I was awestruck by the sea of blue blooms along the highway as I commuted to work. The blue sea was created by the thousands of Bluebonnets, one of the most beautiful wildflowers I have ever seen. Blue flowers were not something I was use to at the time and I just fell in love with them. And I still am. Along College Street in town, there is a house and every year, they have these gorgeous flowers in their yard. This year is a good year b/c we received plenty of rain and enough cold weather so everyone is saying we should have some beautiful flowers. I didn't have to adjust the lighting and color on my shots and you can see how vibrant the blue is! For more photos of the Bluebonnets as well as a flowering Dogwood (a favorite from my home state, North Carolina), view my flickr set.

Thank you to those of you who have posted recently on the Seguin DP. Especially about the ZDT Amusement Center. I am glad you are enjoying the posts and I hope you keep visiting and posting comments. Perhaps I will visit the INSIDE of ZDT soon and then I will provide a follow-up posting. If you have any requests for entries, photos or whatever, let me know and I'll try and capture a piece of Seguin for you.

Amy & Kathy's

Picture 213

I don't get to lunch in town often so I always enjoy going local when I get a chance. My friend took me here and it was very nice. Had their shrimp & avocado cocktail and a panini sandwich. Very tasty and the price is not bad. I like the location of the sandwich shop --- on the square downtown. So if you're on jury duty, this is a great place to check out and then you can grab a cup of joe at Chiro Java along the same block.

King Ranger Theatres

King Ranger Theatres

The only first-run theatre in town. I have been there once but it's been open for several years now. It's just a little too young for me (teens) but it's nice for them to have a place to go in town. I do like their star logo.

Spring is in the air!


That's my cat Smokey relaxing on the grass. Now that it's warm in Seguin, he's spending more time outside. I spied him making friends with a new cat. I haven't seen her before. I think she's a she anyway. They were doing a funny follow-the-leader, slow walk around the yard. Very interesting to watch the animals (birds, squirrels, etc.) enjoying the change in weather.

Old Fire Station

American Bank of Texas

This use to be a fire station. It is the American Bank of Texas and I just like the red brick of the building a lot. Makes me think of North Carolina where I use to live and still miss. We use lots of red brick there.

Ahoy mate!


I love this company we have in town. They are Waterworks Experts Inc. and I posted some frogs I first spotted last July. I pass the Experts everyday going to and from work and I find myself wondering what creature, vessel or other structure I will see. It's so fun! And what a cool thing to think Seguin is home to a group of people whose work is used in waterparks across the nation! I wish I knew where each piece will travel to and call home.
