According to the experts (in Texas), they are anticipating a Bloom Boom with thousands and thousands of wildflowers to cover the fields and areas along the highways and byways with a profusion of color; notably blue, the color of the Texas State Flower, the Bluebonnet.
Texas, along with many other states, had suffered a drought for the past few years, but the fall and winter rains, plus snow in many areas, have wet the way for nature’s beauty pageant. There’s even a wildflower watch on the Brenham/Washington County Convention and Visitor’s Bureau website. For additional information visit here: http://www.brenhamtexas.com/
After reading about Texas I thought I would check on other states to see when they were anticipating their Bloom Boom. Little did I know there is a blooming hotline for flowers! Imagine fields of bright red and deep orange poppies – their faces forever turning with the movement of the sun. Want to know where the best places to go, and when the best time is to see them?

Western North Carolina is bursting with color when the Spring Beauty, Yellow Violet and Dutchman’s Breeches join in the kaleidoscope of color of Spring on Grandfather Mountain. However, if seeing varieties of all species of flowers in one place is more to your liking, then Spring Flower festivals are just the thing for you. Along with the Enis Blubonnet Trails Festival, April 17-19, in Enis, Texas, there is also the Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington D.C., from April 1-4, where many festivities take place among a sea of snowy pink blooms; but, if Georgia’s on your mind, then the 70th annual Atlanta Dogwood Festival (April 17-19) is sure to please with its local and national artists’ display and entertainment galore amid the flowering Dogwoods of pink and white blossoms.
If yellow is your color then you are sure to enjoy the largest daffodil festival in the country to be found in Meriden, Connecticut on April 24-25).
