I just returned from a 300 mile road trip looking for bluebonnet patches. Near the intersection of 281 and 290 in the median, appears to have numerous bluebonnet plants with just a few blooming now. Other wildflowers also popping up but nothing worthy of pictures yet. At Marble Falls, bluebonnets are big and beautiful along the roadside, but traffic is very busy and not a good place for pictures. Park Rd. 4 will have some bloom in a few weeks with just a few patches already in bloom. Inks Lake State Park is beautiful now with green grass and peaceful lakeside viewing. A few patches of bluebonnets near Lake Buchanan Dam area. Not much to mention on road to Bluffton. At Lone Grove Church there are no bluebonnets and only a few wildflowers and appear to be small ones. In the years past, this has been a great place for pictures. From Llano to Willow City Loop turnoff, a few blooms, with more to follow. Willow City Loop has a lot of plants and only a little blooms. Looks like a mediocre year to me. Sandy School will have a nice bloom. Overall, it appears the season will be good but not like 2010. Should see some good color within 10 - 14 days and depending on the rain that is forecast for early next week.

Thanks MB for the report.  Based on just fall rainfall we are matched or beyond 2010 season, but the winter temps and rainfall in 2010 were much better suited for a "once in a lifetime" season than this year. I am still hopeful there will be some great spots here and there.
