Lake Bluebonnet


Finally got this working!  My daddy’s kin are buried here, including my grandparent and greats. Beautiful but you must step lively…rattlers abound! Yikes! My mom is caretaker of this little cemetary.

Everyone says this is a banner year for the bbs and from the looks of the baby plants that haven’t bloomed yet, the bb bloom will last a long while.

Home tomorrow!

    Incredibly beautiful. I’ve never seen a cemetery like that.

      They don’t mow until the flowers are done blooming and have reseeded. During the fall the seeds begin sprouting and taking root w/help from fall& winter rains. Watch out Spring!

      Suz, head out towards Rising Star on 183. About 3 1/2 miles from the mall, you’ll see a sign for Staley Cemetery on the right or east then go about 1/4 mile. There’s a chain link fence & gate that you just unlatch BUT watch rattley critters girl! Lots of bbs, paintbrush, wild petunias and daisies and cactus apples w/lots of fruit! Mother picked some earlier to eat fresh.

    Lovely!f What a peaceful setting for your family. I wonder if Blue Bonnets can grow up north – like in our nursery?

    Safe home, Queenie!
