Though it may feel like this winter is going to go on forever, fear not, as spring flowers are well on their way. Especially in the state of Texas.
As the site explained, the region experienced an above average rainfall this winter, which could lead to a megabloom. Wildflowers, including the region’s famed bluebonnets, are even expected to blanket the region earlier than usual.
"Based on rainfall analysis, temperature analysis and scouting reports, the 2019 season is likely to see roadsides in bloom much earlier than normal and much earlier than fields. Based on some reports of early blooms, the 'bloom-line' could reach San Antonio by mid-March or earlier,” the Texas Wildflower Report noted. “The 2019 Spring Wildflower season in some ways may resemble the 2010 once-in-a-lifetime season.”
