Summer is almost here, and as we mostly watch the world turning from our houses, the wildflowers are blooming. Bluebonnet season was more or less a bust. I've driven close to 1,000 miles over the course of a few weeks - all day trips - looking for fields of blue. Alas, I did not find much in the hill country except a few areas near Mason. However, other colors are out there - reds of Indian blankets and golds of greenthread and coreoposis. The best places I've found have been in the Mason area, though I've seen better showings in past springs. It's just one of those years.
In the meantime, safe travels, Texas!
