First Bluebonnets Blooming Downtown

Sandy Anderson, the Bluebonnet Festival chairperson, doesn’t use a Global Positioning System (GPS) to track the arrival of the State Flower of Texas. While the radio navigation system utilizes over 30 satellites to provide geolocation and time information, she uses the pinpoint accuracy of her eyesight to follow the path of the beloved bluebonnet. According to Becky McCarty, the Ennis Main Street manager, south and west Texas are the regions that witness the first fields of bluebonnets each year. She reports that Anderson’s wanderlust recently took her to visit the Big Bend National Park area to “see the spectacle,” with KDFW Channel 5 featuring her photographs on their broadcast. That band of bluebonnets is fast approaching North Texas. “Around these parts,” says McCarty, those who have a passing fancy for the fields of blue are “just called bluebonnet enthusiasts.” Read stories like this and more in your latest edition of The Ennis News.
