When Is the Best Time

This special event of the Texas bluebonnets takes place for a short period only in April. It depends on the weather and temperature when the bluebonnets start to bloom.

In general, the bluebonnets are at their best during the third week of April. The good thing some patches are already before and some slightly ahead, so you may spot these special carpet flowers somewhere in Ennis.
