Here it comes. The Wildflower Wave hits Texas in April, and if you've never seen their unique wildflower bloom, plan a trip. The big show of bluebonnets, paintbrush, wild phlox and others is mostly in the "Hill Country" around Fredericksburg, and there are all kinds of maps, hotlines and other helps for flower chasers. You won't be disappointed. It's one of the world's most spectacular big blooms, and it doesn't last long. Reports are good from the desert west, which usually means a big year in Texas as well. So don't miss it.
