Baby Bluebonnets Have Arrived

We’ve spotted some baby bluebonnets inside Brenham city limits at a house that always blooms first. They are scattered and small, but they’ve popped out!

We also received word over the weekend that there are bluebonnets at Old Baylor Park in Independence. This is a favorite location among visitors as the backdrop makes great pictures, the scenery is peaceful and historic and it’s a park, so it’s safe for the kiddos. This is also a nice area for a picnic and a swing break!

Now keep in mind that just because a few were spotted, that doesn’t actually mean it’s time to drive over and be wow’ed. It’s still very early, and given the cold weather we’re still having, we can safely say we’re still a couple of weeks away from having anything worth taking pictures of.

For your convenience, we’ll be updating the Wildflower Map as well. You can find it any time by hovering over PLAN up above.

Keep your eyes on the Wildflower Watch for more updates! Also, if you aren’t following us on Facebook (VisitBrenham & Bluebonnets) and Twitter, you should! We’ll post updates there, too.

    Our band played at the Texas Independence Day Celebration in Washington-on-the-Brazos State Park last weekend, Saturday, February 28th and Sunday, March 1st. On the south/southwest side of the Gift Store building there were several bluebonnets in full bloom. As we walked around the south side of the building there were many, many bluebonnet plants just showing. The leaves were close to the ground and the plants were not near ready to bloom yet. Soon, though, that whole area is going to be covered with lovely Lupinus texensis, that is to say, Texas Bluebonnets.
