Is Spring Finally Here?

There are many things that happen before spring officially starts in my book. Pitchers and catchers report to camp, thunderstorms start to get a little rowdy…but none of these are true signs of spring until I see these popping up on the side of the road.

OK, so this picture wasn’t taken here in Oklahoma. It was actually shot outside of Austin, but to me, seeing spring flowers/Bluebonnets popping up is Mother Nature’s way of saying that the ground is warm enough and has been warm enough that it’s time to start producing color.

Last year was a rough year for wildflower fans from Texas to Oklahoma due to a very dry winter. A few blooms were noted but was much less than desired. This year though may be totally different. The fall rains were good and the ground has been moist all winter long. Now all we need is to see a few more rain events between now and mid-April and that will get the ground going.

So hang in there Oklahoma…the winter brown is quickly fading.
