While it hasn’t been the absolute perfect weather for flora to begin their annual invasion, there are a few that have been spotted making a start for spring and summer. I hope it’s safe to say that it is bluebonnet season because we’re expecting them every day, and being asked about them every day.
The best place thus far we have located bluebonnets in Kerrville is on Highway 173 past Kerrville-Schreiner Park going toward Bandera. There is a small but vibrant blue patch on the left side of the road. We have reports from visitors, who called to tell or actually came back into our office to brag, that there are some decent sightings of bluebonnets in Willow City Loop north of Fredericksburg. I have noticed some small patches on I10, which I travel every day, but I don’t exactly recommend stopping for those. If you would like to stay within the city and county take a quick drive past the park or through some suburbs. While in the suburbs I suggest asking for permission to take pictures if the flowers are on private property, just to keep you safe.
There is also a Texas Department of Transportation number that is available to call, to ask for the best time and place to see Texas bluebonnets, 800.452.9292
As always you are welcome to call our office at 830.792.3535, visit our website www.kerrvilletexascvb.com or simply stop by, we’re located at 2108 Sidney Baker, Kerrville.
