The central part of Texas is known as the Hill Country and is made up of mostly small towns with names like Boerne (Bernie), Schertz, Bulverde, Johnson City, New Braunfels. At one time or another it has been home to Lyndon and Lady Bird Johnson, Willie Nelson, Molly Ivins, Lance Armstrong, Tommy Lee Jones and Andy Roddick. As you might guess, the area has a quite colorful history.
A favorite time of the year to explore the Hill Country is the spring when fields are generally alive with bluebonnets and Indian paints.
At the Cibolo Fairgrounds near Boerne crowds were attending a gigantic plant sale and loading up with native vegetation.
For a little something extra, there was Sticky Cowboy honey, all natural and unprocessed. The beekeeper explained it was a natural source of live enzymes, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and healing agents. Who knew?
The Guadalupe River runs through the area, and with no rain the water was pretty low.
Right next door was an old rundown theater turned antique cooperative. I had to do a lot of looking to find a special treasure, but I did find a crystal bell to add to my collection and a couple of 1978 Spider Man comic books for a son-in-law.
