March in Austin is the start of Texas bluebonnet season and the flowers have been popping up all over for the past week.
Typically, depending on weather, bluebonnets start to bloom in Austin sometime around mid-to late-March and April.
Back in 1901, the 27th Texas state legislature adopted the bluebonnet as the state flower.
In the 1930s the Texas Highway Department started a beautification program and sowed bluebonnet seeds along the roads around the state, which is why we see them so often as we are driving.
In the picture above, the bluebonnets surround the old Mueller Airport Control Tower, which is about a ten-minute walk from this Airbnb.
