It's March, and that means that it's time to start thinking about getting outside and enjoying the fresh air and springtime flowers. Many of our friends and family ask us how the bluebonnets are looking, so I came up with a handy gauge to show exactly how good the bluebonnets are for the upcoming weekend - the Bluebonnicator (patent still pending).
Every Thursday throughout March and April we'll post the official Bluebonnicator index for Brenham, Texas (the Bluebonnet capital of the world) for the upcoming weekend .
So, without further ado, this week's Bluebonnicator index is:
0. Zero. None. Nada. Don't waste your time. The freezing weather we all got just a couple of weeks ago has made the flowers a little late this year. In fact, things are just now starting to green up.
That's not to say there aren't great reasons to come visit Brenham this weekend - for a little piratey fun, say. But just don't expect to see any bluebonnets yet.
