I saw barometer bushes AKA Texas Sage blooming heavily in Wimberley Texas today. Maybe it is going to rain again. Joint prayer on the count of three....ONE: TWO.........

I'm in the Metroplex and it's blooming in the medians right by the Hwy 183/121 split in the Mid-Cities. Maybe the hurricane in Mexico set them off?

I'm in San Angelo and my sage bushes are both blooming and the neighbor across the street has 3 in full bloom...didn't even know there were sage bushes in that yard! We moved here in March/April and the large sage bloomed once...had 3/4 inch of rain 2 days later, then the lil one bloomed and we had another 3/4 inch rain 2 days later. With both blooming I'm hoping and praying we get a 2 inch rain!! We are restricted on watering...down to 1 day/week.

well, yesterday was just a tease, but there is supposed to be a 20% chance today and tomorrow.

I have had my rain catchment system in place for 8 weeks and I still don't even know how well it works! I am ready!!!!!

They are blooming all over Lampasas as well. I wonder if it is due to the increased humidity the past week. Certainly haven't had enough rain to set them off and don't see any in our future, either. :(

Since this thread started I've noticed the ones in the medians around here in central Denton County are also in full bloom.
