Brookwood Community

Debra and I went to Brookshire Texas where the Brookwood nursery,café, and gift shop is located.
Brookwood is a 475 acre  Christian community that houses and trains people with disabilities.

The nursery was filled with the most beautiful flowers.

The gift shop  had some  unique items. I bought Phil’s mom a lovely scarf for Mother’s day.

This sculpture caught my eye right away.

The café had linen tablecloths and was very upscale with delicious gourmet dishes.

Driving anywhere in this part of Texas is always scenic.

Some Bluebonnets and Indian Paintbrush
