Texas Wildflower Update 2/22/15

Photographer Gary Regner reports on February 22, 2015

Early Signs of Spring

We’ve had a roller coaster ride of temperatures over the last several weeks that included many days of above normal spring-like weather. That has come to an abrupt end with colder than normal temperatures forecast for the next 7-10 days at least. The warmer weather did, however, cause some trees to start blooming and put on new leaves. The only native tree spotted in the Austin area that has begun to bloom is the redbud. Invasive weeds are blooming already including invasive mustard and pin clover. The landscape is becoming much greener as well with grasses waking from their winter slumber. Native annuals should be starting to bloom soon, but it is unclear how the recent temperature extremes will impact the bloom. I will begin scouting trips the first weekend of March.
