Good Fences #109

I climbed the hill next to the parking lot at my workplace recently to take photos of this tree, as well as the Bluebonnets.  I've admired this tree from the parking lot for quite a while and decided I needed to go see it.
 And it has a little one near it. :)
The Bluebonnets were thick in some areas
 making the view from the hill back to the parking lot look like it had a pond nearby. :)
Spring in Texas is lovely, even next to a workplace. :)
Here's the link-up!

Hello Tex, the bluebonnets are pretty and I love that tree. Lovely series of photos. Thanks for hosting, have a happy day and weekend ahead!

Christine said...

Your Texas bluebonnets remind me of our English bluebells as they make the vales look like ponds and lakes when in full bloom. Really love the tree and its small sister tree nearby!
Thanks for hosting and hope the view helps you through your workday!

Brian King said...

Wow, that IS beautiful! Great Texas tree! It's nice to have that setting at work!

Denise inVA said...

Those Bluebonnets are a gorgeous sight. Love the trees, little and big. Have a great day Theresa :)

Buttons Thoughts said...

Morning Tex, those are so pretty it makes working seem a bit easier when you can have a view of flowers. Love the trees. It was worth climbing the hill:) Hug B

Joseph Jameson-Gould said...

That tree looks like it has a whole other tree attached to it!

Lynne said...

Great tree . . . and it's youngin' . . .
And your workplace Bluebonnets get a "high five" . . .
So pretty . . .
They remind me of what we call Lupine here in Michigan . . .
although your Texas Bluebonnets have that white topper to go with the blue . . .
And that sets them off perfectly!

HOOTIN ANNI said...

Nothing like Texas Bluebonnets!!! How beautiful.
And I see why you admire that tree.

Pix Under the Oaks said...

Oh the Bluebonnets! I love a tree with personality and this one has it! The little tree is good company... :)

Roses, Lace and Brocante said...

Oh what an amazing sight - those beautiful Bluebonnets!
The tree is quite magnificent.
Thank you for hosting Tex.

Kenneth Cole Schneider said...

That tree is a beautiful subject, and its placement in the first photo makes it look as if trying to embrace the sky and clouds. Bluebonnets bring back memories of springtime at our home in Dallas, where we raised our family.

HOOTIN ANNI said...

ps...well, this is embarrassing. At first I failed to have the 'widow's walk' image on my post....I had already linked up. NOW the image is on my post. Sorry 'bout that.

[this has been a messed up week for me...all day YESTERDAY was Thursday to me. geez]

Kate said...

The beauty of the bluebonnets is worth the wait for them!

Cranberry Morning said...

So nice that you found a second tree, but those bluebonnets!!
I was too early to find them in mid March. What a sight!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Love "Lake Bluebonnet"...it really does look like one! So beautiful ... And the tree and its little baby one are great too. (I see why you can't post as often nowadays. Grateful you can still find some time to host and to share Texas and the RunArround's beauty. Thank you.)

Debbie said...

the bluebonnets are beautiful, what a beautiful view....it does look like at water!!!

Andrea Priebe said...

I had to struggle to see the fence (old eyes :( ) but I didn't try too hard because everything else is so beautiful. I love the tree ... you should post it on Monica's "NF Trees and Bushes". Nice refreshing series, Theresa :)

So beautiful! The shape of the tree is majestic. I love the bluebonnets covering the ground. TX must be a gorgeous place to live with all its wild flowers!

The bluebonnet carpet is so lovely. The bare trees, both large and small, will burst into shades of green soon.

The tree looks like it has waited a long time to have its picture taken.

William Kendall said...

Those blue bonnets are such a pretty sight!

Nancy Chan said...

Beautiful scenery of tree and bluebonnets. Have a beautiful day!

Both those trees were well worth stopping to photograph. I like the "subtle" little fences in your shots. Most of all I love those gorgeous bluebonnets!

Chandra@GreenComotion said...

Hi Theresa,
You have turned what myth go unnoticed into a scene noteworthy, by creatively portraying the area's fine features. Very nicely done!
Thanks for hosting GF and Have a Happy Day!
Peace :)

Did Lady Bird plant those bluebonnets? I know she was into making the Texas landscape more colorful.

joeh said...

It does look like a pond, very cool.

The bare tree against the dark sky is very dramatic and the bluebonnets are beautiful.

Lovely pictures of the Bluebonnets!

podso said...

Love the bluebonnets--like English bluebells. I love seeing beauty through other blogger's eyes and how nice you climbed the hill to take some photos and explore. Thanks for hosting; it's my first time joining in though I've read many a Good Fence post from others.

Felicia said...

the posies sure are pretty and yes it does look like a pond. we don't have the bluebonnets but we sure have dandelions like this.

You have a very green spring with lush vegetation.

Paul said...

Your Spring Bluebonnets pictures amaze me every year, Bluebonnets as far as the eye can see and a fine looking character tree to go with!

pattisjarrett said...

That is a great tree! Bluebonnet season! I'm glad you ventured up the hill to get the photos. That does look like a body of water - add a few Whistling Ducks and you'd feel right at home.

Epic Bluebonnets, TWG.

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

That is a shapely tree. You'll have to climb the hill again and get a picture of it leafed out.

Karen S. said...

Wow, now that is some view surrounding your workplace. I'm smack in the center of heavy commercial surroundings. Shopping centers on all sides as well as one of our malls across the street! But, a few miles away, almost as pretty as your view.

Rita said...

That does look like water in the field!
I love a tree with character! :)

I'm not the only one who goes out of the way to visit a tree? Oh, thank heavens for that.

Our photos said...

Love it, spring ! Very nice series !

Kovács Miklós said...

So beautiful flowers. Spring is really nice in Texas :)
Have a great weekend!

Inger said...

I see all the rain in TX on the news. I know you are closer to Dallar than Huston, but it sound like a lot fell there too. Hope you are OK. The wildflowers are gorgeous here too this year, which is what a little rain can do. It's wonderful when there's enough and not too much of it.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Love the tree and would love to see the Bluebonnets in person someday!

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Tex, Yes, Texas wildflowers are so beautiful. I can't blame you for wanting to take lots of snap-shots! Have an excellent weekend!

Have a great weekend~

The tree is really beautiful to see and gefootgrafeerd very beautiful.
Purple Flowers (hort enisa's?) Are great as a very large purple carpet.
