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.

Oh yeah … Waxahachie is still kicking bluebonnets! Hurry! Hurry! Hurry! This year’s season is winding down. Get out there to get your bluebonnets pics. A big thank you to Michelle for sending in this bluebonnet sightings report. She says this field is located on Alysa Lane near Paiwan Road. She says to just look for the open fields. Also, it sounds like some landowners are pretty friendly to those bluebonnet lovers wanting to get into the fields to take pictures. Michelle says, “We asked permission to go out in the field, but...read more
It pays to ride shotgun with us! Woo hoo! Y’all, we’re going to let the cat out of the bag and tell you of a sweet little field you can get pictures in the bluebonnets that’s off the beaten path. When you hit the trails and you’ve gone to the big bluebonnet field on Mach Road, instead of following the trail map provided by the Ennis Garden Club and taking a right onto Walker Creek Road from Mach Road, you want to take a left. Follow the road up the hill a little bit and on the left hand side of the road you will see a...read more
Y’all, Creechville Road (FM 1181) is looking sweet this year! It’s got some HUGE bluebonnet fields on it. It’s definitely on this year’s map for the Ennis Bluebonnet Trails. Here’s our series of videos showing you the types of fields and how large they are along Creechville Road. We’re showing them in the order you’ll see them as you drive in the direction the Ennis Garden Club suggests. Just follow their map and you’ll be cool. We are still expecting peak to be within the next one to two weeks....read more
Field Update as of April 19, 2013: Once again, Jami comes through for us by providing everyone with a video update of the fields along Valek Road in Ennis, Texas. We just spoke with the Ennis Visitor Center and we all feel like this area of Ennis will not peak until the last weekend in April. In fact, the Ennis Garden Club is now calling the south bluebonnet trail (which Valek Road is located on) the best trail at the moment. If you haven’t made it to Ennis yet, definitely come. They’ll have bluebonnets into May this year. Woot! :...read more
Field Update as of April 13, 2013: Here’s a video we shot of Mach Road on April 13, 2013. It’s coming along quite nicely but it will not be like last season’s field. The blanket will not be as thick and the field will not extend to the boundaries of the fence line. It will, however, still be an impressive field once it peaks. We expect peak to be anywhere from one to two weeks away. ___________________________________________________________________________ Okay, y’all, we have seen our baby with our own eyeballs and...read more
It’s not peak bloom time in Ennis yet, but they’re definitely starting to bloom! Just got an email from Ennis and they’re saying it’s going to be a good year! A big thank you to Tessa Foreman for sending in this bluebonnet sightings report. She says there are bluebonnets on Highway 287 just west of Ennis near Nesuda Road. Here’s the lowdown on this bluebonnet field: Stage of Bloom Cycle: Peak Bloom Stage. Flower stalks are full of blooms. All banner petals are white. Bluebonnet Blanket: Average. There are lots...read more
It’s that time of the season again! Ennis is just about to start blooming! Thank you to Tex Frozzard for sending us this sightings report for Crisp Road. This field is a definite drive-by field considering it is someone’s front yard. The blanket looks thick and the bluebonnets look healthy. Woo hoo! The location of this bluebonnet field is at 1600 Crisp Road in Ennis, Texas. Y’all enjoy! : ) View 2013 Texas Bluebonnet Sightings in a larger...read more
