Seeing Blooming Daffodils Has Me Wondering Where The Texas Bluebonnets Have Gone

I saw what you see on the left on my old hometown newspaper online this morning.

Daffodils blooming. Lots of daffodils.

Apparently spring sprang on schedule in my old home zone, with the Skagit Valley in multi-color mode with acres upon acres of fields of daffodils, tulips and other bloomers.

Meanwhile, at my location in Texas, where spring has also sprung, we are currently over two-thirds through the month of March, with nary a colorful wildflower to be seen.

Where have all the bluebonnets gone?

Patience. The blue bonnets will be along in due time.

Durango, we were surprised to see blooming yellow daffodils last week near the new Tilley pedestrian bridge near Trinity Park. Or at least that's what I think they are. There's a new little 'park' there on the east side of the bridge, and the flowers were just planted on the west side. They look nice.
