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 email@example.com.

Thank you to Thao for sending in this bluebonnet sightings report. Brenham is still kicking with bluebonnets. Although we’re getting reports that the bluebonnets are still pretty in the area, you definitely want to get out soon before everything starts setting seed. Thao tells us the closest cross road is Tigerpoint Road, it’s mostly a drive-by field, and the bluebonnets are mixed with other wildflowers in this field. Looks like the grasses and weeds are getting a little ahead of the bluebonnets on this one so hurry! Y’all...read more
If you’re up for a day hike and you still want to see bluebonnets along the trail, then the hike-in field at Washington-on-the-Brazos State Park is the place to be! What a sweet field to stumble upon while on the trail. We’d like to give Amanda a big shout out for sending in this bluebonnet sightings report. We had heard mixed reports about the bluebonnets at the park and it’s good to see they’ve got several fields. Amanda says, “Washington-on-the-Brazos State Park has several beautiful fields of bluebonnets along...read more
We’ve been hearing more and more about the Chappell Hill area! What sounded like a dismal bluebonnet season for this area has turned into a very pleasant, as well as beautiful, beginning. Woot!

A big shout out to one of our Facebook followers, J.B. Manning of JBMV Photography! He took a tour of the Chappell Hill, Navasota, and Independence areas looking for bluebonnet fields to tell y’all about and a fine job he did!

So if you’re looking for a little more interest in your bluebonnet pics this season, swing by this field for a looksie. J.B. says the field isn’t fenced nor is it posted so it...read more
Bellville Bluebonnets! Yeah! If you’re in the Brenham area or on your way, here’s another field to put on your list. Thank you, Debbie Theriot, for submitting this bluebonnet sightings report.
