Texas May See Its Biggest Wildflower Bloom in a Decade

Though it may feel like this winter is going to go on forever, fear not, as spring flowers are well on their way. Especially in the state of Texas.

According to Wide Open Country, Texas Hill Country — a region located at the nexus of west, central, and south Texas — could see its greatest flower bloom in a decade.

As the site explained, the region experienced an above average rainfall this winter, which could lead to a megabloom. Wildflowers, including the region’s famed bluebonnets, are even expected to blanket the region earlier than usual.

We always try to take a trip to Washington on the Brazos each year to see the bluebonnets.

I hope this is right.  I'd love a trip to the hill country to see them.

I read too that a lot of plants are blooming early this year and they may be in danger of a late freeze.

I sure hope not. I've always thought a cold snap can still come until the pecan trees bud out.  My naval orange tree has been covered in blooms for over a week now. Its the only tree so far now.

Around here, we may be looking at some different species than normal.

I got the yard cut just before the rain hit.

@thackney are you going to get a  nuisance gator permit this year?

Good timing... I just saw my first bluebonnets of this season, on a small patch of grass next to a highway entrance ramp.  It seems a bit early, but then, it is almost March.  :thud:
The more people I meet, the more convinced I am that I should be a hermit living in a cabin in a deep forest.

I hope that's true...but we'll see.. I planted bluebonnets, Indian Paint, and evening primrose on my place several years ago. But if I have to mow they won't grow or bloom. But it might be nice on the side of the roads.

I suspect I will, but it is too swampy to even get the tractor back to the slough yet.
