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.

On our way to our Mom’s house in Belton, we decided to cruise by the West Adams Avenue field that was pretty popular a couple of weeks ago and ran into Adria Crooke photographing her daughter in the bluebonnets. We asked her to do a bluebonnet sightings report for us updating the field and she was so nice to do one. When we approached the road from West Adams Avenue and North Apache Drive, we were very concerned because it is definitely overgrown, but we gave it another chance and kept on driving up North Apache Drive to Airport Road....read more
