When spring comes to the Lone Star State, it brings lots of beautiful, colourful wildflowers to the hills and valleys of Texas. Bluebonnets, being one of the state symbols, can be seen growing in every corner of the state, but the Texas Hill Country seems to be their favorite place. The fields bloom for about 6 weeks, from March till mid-April. The peak season is usually in April.
