Took my first Hill Country scouting trip today and was very suprised and very optomistic about this years crop. Excited to see fields starting to fill in! Below is a summary and a few pics.

Summary - Everything appears to be two to three weeks from peak and overall, LOTS of young plants with blooms yet to come. Looks to be an above average year. I didn't make it anywhere east of Hwy 16.

Hwy 16 from Willow City Loop entrance to Llano - lots of young roadside BB and IP and a couple fields starting to fill in.

Hwy 29 from Llano to Art - lots of roadside BB and IP and a couple large fields filling in.

FM 1900 and 2618 still too early but looks promising.

Hwy 71 Fredonia to Ponotoc had BB coming into Ponotoc but just starting. Ponotoc ruins had BB looking good.

Hwy 71 Ponotoc to Llano more BB closer to Llano and a couple fields starting to fill in.

Hwy 16 to Babyhead Cemetery had lots of BB and IP starting to fill in but too early for fields.

Thanks again Mike for another great report with encouraging news.  I am still a bit cautious about this season, but your reports are helping me stay positive that will we have at least some really nice spots out in the Hill Country!
