Uniquely Ellis County Portfolio

These images originate from images taken in Ellis County.  As a young girl growing up in the small Texas town of Milford, we would often drive into–what seemed at the time–the big city of Waxahachie to do our “real” shopping. We lived on the M&M Ranch just outside of Milford and my young days there seemed almost magical.  The wildflowers that grew in the pastures next to our house is where I first discovered nature.  I would pick one of the flowers and examine it closely. Then I would pick more and run to the house with a stemless bouquet to give my mother. (Children only go for what’s important, and that was the flower, not the stem!)
