Help! Is Central Texas Having A Bluebonnet Drought?
As far back as I can remember, the time between the end of March and about mid-April is prime time for bluebonnets springing up all over Central Texas. I know we had a weird winter, but was that enough to somehow ruin bluebonnet season?
Yeah, that's right - I'm wondering where in Central Texas the bluebonnets are! Have you seen many?
HAVE YOU SEEN OUT ANY BLUEBONNETS IN CENTRAL TEXAS?
Our state flower is the Lupinus texensis, nicknamed the bluebonnet, has been missing this season and we Texans are worried. Taking pictures with bluebonnets is a right of passage for Texans, and it’s just not a Texas spring without them.
We usually see huge patches of them in familiar places across our area, but is it just me or does it seem like we're only seeing tiny little patches along the side of the road?
WHAT'S TEXAS WITHOUT BLUEBONNETS?
I don’t wanna make this an issue or sound dramatic, but in the last couple of years we’ve had a lot of crazy weather like snow storms and tornadoes, and I do believe that is truly affecting the green (and blue) life here in Texas.
What is the bluebonnets just became fewer and fewer each year? Would we have to change our state flower? (Okay, that might be a little dramatic.)
I’m hoping to see bluebonnets very soon the season, but my hopes are not so high knowing that we are going into the summer quicker than we think.
CENTRAL TEXAS DO YOU HAVE BLUEBONNET PICTURES?
Central Texas, if you be spotted a big batch of bluebonnets and stopped to take a picture, could you send it to us? You can send it via our free app, or on our Facebook page. We'd love to see your bluebonnet pics because it really feels like there just haven't been enough this year.
.Just like Big Red, barbecue, and SXSW, bluebonnets are a part of the Texas culture. It's weird not seeing the usual enormous patches of them.
