May wildflowers in the Texas Hill Country by Gary Regner

Firewheels (red), lazy daisies (white) and bluebonnets blanket a field in Mason county in the Texas Hill Country.

In cooler, wetter years, bluebonnets can bloom well into May when late spring/early summer wildflowers such as firewheels and lazy daisies begin to bloom. This image was from the Texas Hill Country on May 3, 2007.  During that year bluebonnets bloomed from March well into May creating this patriotic mix of red, white and blue colors.  Conditions are similar this year to 2007, so we could see similar displays in the coming months.
