Bluebonnet Sightings Reported to Us
Sightings reports that are sent directly to us are the heart and soul of Texas Bluebonnet Sightings. A picture or video is worth a thousand words! It’s one thing for someone to tell you where bluebonnets are, but with today’s price of gas, pictures — especially videos — tell you whether a field is worth your time and money to go out and have a looky-loo.
These sightings reports are so important to us, that we take the effort to include a Google map with every report that is sent directly to us. If your camera or cell phone is GPS enabled, we’re able to gather the GPS coordinates from your photos and videos and that makes it possible for us to provide an exact location of your report. If your camera or cell phone isn’t GPS enabled, no worries, just give us a pretty good idea of the location when you make your report.
To make a bluebonnet sightings report, send your photos and videos (as many as you like at one time) to firstname.lastname@example.org.

And the 2012 Bluebonnet Sightings Are …
We saw this field last year and it was one of the most fragrant fields we stumbled upon the entire season. And it didn’t disappoint this year either. We wouldn’t saw it was as fragrant as last year but it still smelled nice and pretty. : ) This field is for all those peeps who live within or visit the Austin/Houston/San Antonio triangle as it is located half way between La Grange and Schulenburg on Hwy 77. So if you’re cruising Hwy 71 or I-10 and you need a bluebonnet distraction, head to this field....read more
Highway 6 is beginning to come alive! We’re starting to see more chatter on Twitter regarding this stretch of road. Looking pretty! Thanks, Carla, for the bluebonnet sightings report and the kind words. : ) Carla Whitaker writes: Hi there, I posted to your FB page about the location I found today. Here are a a few pics I took from a couple of different fields if you would like any of them. Hwy 6 north of 290 on way to Navasota. Love your FB page! Carla W. Spring,...read more
OMG! We love the first photo. We hope the guy caught the little boy. Oh … to be that young again so you can fly above the bluebonnets. Sounds like a sweet little field where people can pull over and take the fam pics. Kellie Langley writes: 290 out from Houston, right on 1155, right to stay on 1155 when it basically dead ends, and then left on the first road after Harry Franklin Road. It is immediately on the right. No fence at all and gorgeous, dense Bluebonnets with plenty of Indian...read more
Thanks, Michelle, for the bluebonnet sightings report! That’s a nice sized field of bluebonnets! : ) Michelle Nolan writes: The Bluebonnet photo is a small portion of the field off of Jozwiak Rd in Brenham. The field of wildflowers is at Brenham Christian Academy on 577. I’ll take pictures of the Austin fields today and send them in tonight.read more
Thanks, Jill Midkiff, for the bluebonnet sightings report. This photo was taken on March 24, 2012, somewhere along FM 1155 near Brenham, Texas. It’s good to see some Indian Paintbrushes mixing in with the bluebonnets out there. Note the grasses — they’re getting tall. Bluebonnets are real fresh in this picture, less than a week old. If you’re going to do Brenham this year, though, get out soon before the grasses overtake the bluebonnets! : ) Location on map is...read more
Oh. My. God! And people this is Chappell Hill. We don’t get it. We’ve got people telling us they’re stunning and we’ve got people telling us they’re disappointing — but a picture is worth a thousand words and here’s a bunch of words. Absolutely breathtaking! Looks like a field of Lupinus subcarnosus. That explains the blue-ness. Thank you, Jennifer, for a wonderful bluebonnet sightings report. : ) Location on map is...read more
What a sweet little patch of bluebonnets! This cemetery has a lot of potential for all you photography buffs. The report didn’t give the name of the Catholic church it is located, but Dubina is such a small town, we’re pretty sure there’s only one in the town and if you ask, we’re sure someone can point you in the right direction. Thanks, Greg, for the sightings report! : ) Greg Rabel writes: I saw quite a few today on 71 West, past the Gay Hill Baptist Church heading toward La Grange. These [the bluebonnets in the...read more
Thank you, Patty! We love the sightings report. And we love the little girl running in the picture! : ) Patty Hernandez writes: Bluebonnets in Chappel Hill! Found this patch off of the Chappel Hill sausage factory on Sausage Lane About 10 mins past Hempsteadread more
Thanks, Bryan, for the bluebonnet sightings report! The field at Old Baylor State Park looks pretty sweet. Definitely much, much better than last year. : ) (Okay, for all you budding photographers and professionals alike, we’ll let you in on an awesome little location. It’s an old cemetery that some of Texas’ “Old Three Hundred” are buried — plus the bluebonnets are growing on the graves with a bunch of really old gravestones. If you compose your shots right, you’ll get some sweet pics. If you want to...read more
Looks like a sweet little field in Chappell Hill. Thanks, Mary, for the sightings report! If you can, will you leave a comment down below telling us where on FM 1155 you spotted these bluebonnets? Was it closer to Chappell Hill or Washington-on-the-Brazos? Thanks! : ) Mary Weber writes: On 1155 northeast of Chapel Hill Location on map is...read more
