On Thursday, around noon, I drove by the “old hospital” at the corner of State Highway 123 and State Highway 80, and was distressed to see that the City of Karnes City had just mowed down all the beautiful blooming bluebonnets along a portion of State Highway 80.
I went to City Hall and asked why they had mowed them down before giving them a chance to seed, I was told I would be contacted. City Manager Don Tymrak did call late Friday afternoon and said he would look into the matter.
It is a shame that the bluebonnets were destroyed because this is the first year they were so thick and beautiful. A
fter all this is our state flower and to have someone treat it like a bothersome weed is so very sad.
