Bluebonnet Magic again in 2020?

Can Mother Nature work her Texas Bluebonnet magic again in Spring 2020? This first image is what I call the Kirby Bluebonnet Hotspot and is located along the main dam road. The first image was taken on April 6, 2019 and the second taken yesterday. You can think of the flowerless image as a blank slate for this coming year’s Bluebonnet crop. The seeds from some of last year’s plants are there in the soil ready to germinate in the coming weeks of winter if conditions are favorable. I am a little concerned over the lack of substantial rainfall over the last several months. We need some soon to have a repeat of last year’s spectacular wildflower season at Kirby. Keep your fingers crossed! #DoctorBot #LakeKirby
