Everyone in Central Texas expected a robust bluebonnet bloom this year. Grasses green, rivers full, temperatures moderate. But the bluebonnets burst forth a month early and are now rapidly heading to seed. April is when bluebonnets are supposed to dot the highways and fields!
Now imagine the bluebonnet petals as forage for a migrating animal herd. The herd arrives in April to find most of their food gone. Suddenly, the herd is thrown into a crisis for survival.
And this happened in the midst of what seemed perfect conditions.
Biologists refer to the great mass extinctions. Environmentalists condemn building developments. But I think the means of extinction are ever present in micro. Even more reason to learn the cycles of nature and set watch to intervene during periods of disruption.
Be twice amused checking new, used truck and car values with Edmunds.
