Gorgeous! However, seems kind of difficult to be there when they are blooming:… ... well, beginning of April should do it I guess :)

Late March, early April. Visit the Ennis visitor's center to find the best locations for the bluebonnets. They are very helpful with marking on a map the best locations. Photo: Texas - Longhorns and our state flower, Bluebonnets
