The Texas Bluebonnet Report eBooks provide a summary of the conditions for the 2015 Texas Wildflower Season with a focus on the Texas Bluebonnet. Each guide provides a rainfall analysis, overview of the area, popular routes, route maps, sample photos, and other resources. There are guides for Brenham, Ennis and the Hill Country. While the focus is on Texas Bluebonnets, the information is also applicable to those seeking other wildflower displays.

The South and East of San Antonio eBook has been added and updated to reflect recent trip reports. Right now it appears the areas between I-35 and I-37 are doing much better than the areas between I-37 and I-10. 

The eBook can be downloaded at: http://www.wildflowerhaven.com/eBooks...

Rich,

Thanks for your work in putting these eBooks together.  They were very helpful for me last year in finding locations to visit as I was just starting out shooting wildflowers.  Do you plan to put together one for the area ESE of San Antonio (i.e., Wilson County) as you did last year?  If not, what is your take on that area?  It looks like it received average to above average rainfall.  Although the bluebonnets are of the Sandy variety, the variety of colors of different wildflowers together was stunning last year.

Thanks again.

Thank you BillS,

I am hoping to get down to that area this week to do some scouting and then update last year's eBook. Based on just the rainfall analysis, the Floresville - La Vernia - New Berlin area should do well this year. If you have the eBook from last year then I think it would be worth a visit to at least the New Berlin - Church RD area.

Thanks again.

Rich,

In the Ennis e-book under the other areas, it looks like the section on Other Areas for Navarro, Limestone, and Freestone counties, it looks like this section didn't change from last year (as it's not really the focus of the book).  While this area had above average rainfall for the 2014 season, it looks like this year it is similar to Ennis with below average rainfall.  In that case, would the expectation for these counties for this year be down from last year?  I went to Ennis for the first time last year, but thought some of these areas were better and less busy.

Thanks,

BillS
