Washington County - Brenham, TX
Do NOT waste your time going to Washington Co or NW Austin now. I covered Shelby, Industry, Blieberville, Brenham, Old Washington, William Penn, Independence, & Chapel Hill today. (US 290, State 105, and numerous farm roads and county lanes. Very few flowers.) It may get hot, but the grass is growing like mad & many flowers may be difficult to see. I am from Washington County and I know the area well. The best I saw were 2 fields of red blankets, one between Brenham & Shelby (FM 389) and another on TX 105 about a mile west of the Brazos bridge in the Cole's Creek bottom.
