Photographer Gary Regner just posted a new Texas Wildflower report:
March 16, 2013 – Bluebonnets have arrived
Reports of bluebonnets blooming in the Houston and San Antonio areas are coming in. Coreopsis, greenthread and phlox have been spotted as well. I spotted a solitary bluebonnet plant blooming in Austin along IH-35, but so far no patches.
A large patch of bluebonnets has been reported near the Houston Patio Garden Center along the IH-45 feeder going north between TX 242 and FM 1488
Bluebonnets have been reported blooming along IH-35 near Moore, south of San Antonio
Some small patches of bluebonnets have been spotted in the Hill Country along Hwy 29 between Llano and FM 1431. I will be in the Burnet area on Thursday and will provide an update.
