I mentioned in one of my recent blogs that its not illegal to pick bluebonnets. However, I strongly recommend against it and since we are talking about Bluebonnets let me share with you where you can find this official treasured Texas flower. One of the largest patches of Texas Bluebonnets and Indian Paint Brushes that I have seen in a number of years are located just a short drive from Austin or Bastrop. If you live in Austin take the enjoyable drive out Highway 71 towards Bastrop and about nine miles from the airport you will find one of the largest most beautiful fields of colorful Bluebonnets mixed with the native Indian Paint Brushes you have ever seen. If you live in Bastrop or somewhere between Bastrop and Houston take Highway 71 towards Austin and just look for the cars lined up on the shoulder of the roadway and be careful when pulling off the roadway because there are lots of small children eager to make their way to the Bluebonnet fields.
Its really great to see the excitement of many families on this Easter Sunday taking some memorable photographs of their children and grandchildren and I’m no exception. And don’t be surprised if you’re asked to take a few pictures for the single parents with their children because it happened to me several times and I was glad to help. I can see these family pictures hitting Facebook before they even drive away. These Bluebonnets and Indian Paint Brushes make awesome backdrops and can only be found in Texas. So if you’re traveling for the Easter Holiday’s take my advice and visit this little bluebonnet treasure between Austin and Bastrop and drop me a line, post your favorite family picture and share your thoughts.

Take the Virtual Tour
This completely remodeled 4-bedroom, 2-bath 1984 sf +/- home at 1713 Roosevelt St. in Historic Bastrop, TX just hit the market at remarkable price of $245,000. Believe me when I say you surely don’t want to pass up the opportunity too see this home. If you’ve been thinking about making a move than I would suggest this home that’s located in what has been historically referred to as the “New Addition” of Bastrop. This home was originally built in 1967 and remodeled in March and April of 2014. Here are just a few of the upgrades you will see: Quartz soft stone counter tops, parquet and tile floors throughout, recessed lighting, stainless steel appliances, walk-in tile shower in the master, custom paint and trim, large walk in panty and laundry room located just off the kitchen. A 480 sf detached studio/guest house in backyard was also remolded and is great bonus. Just out the backdoor you’ll find the oversized lot with an open circular patio with a covered arbor and plenty of room for family barbecues and entertaining friends. The front and back yards are fenced on three sides and the flowerbeds and private garden areas are professionally landscaped complete with walking stones and sidewalk.
Although this home is located in the “New Addition” of Bastrop it was actually developed in the late 1940’s and was home to many of the 90,000 US soldiers stationed at Camp Swift. Camp Swift was the largest army training and transshipment camp in Texas. It also housed 3,865 German prisoners of war. The history of this neighborhood runs deep and many of the homes were past down to family members who still occupy these homes today.
So when thinking about this home just consider this, you’re buying more than a home, your buying a piece of Bastrop’s rich history near the banks of the Colorado River in one of oldest cities in Texas,
