The state flower of Texas is the bluebonnet.
In the early spring the roadside and fields are blue .
A beautiful time for a drive around Texas
On a drive through the country, you will see fields of blue.
Sometimes you see red, white, and blue.
There is white on the bluebonnets as well as blue. The reddish orange comes from the Indian paintbrush.
Every spring, families line the highways, tip-toeing through the medians, all risking life and limb to capture that annual bluebonnet portrait. It's a Texas tradition.
But rarely, if ever, will you see anyone plucking one of those bright blue flowers for their scrapbooks. Why? "It's illegal to pick bluebonnets! It's the state flower!" Every Texan has heard it, and most will argue the point.
But is it true? Is it really illegal to pick bluebonnets?
"The answer is no," reads a press release from the Texas Department of Public Safety, the agency that encompasses the highway patrol and whose job it would be to enforce such legislation. "There is no law against picking our state flower."
Please don't tell anyone though.
