181 years of Texas ~ Did you know…? “The bluebonnet is to Texas what the shamrock is to Ireland,” ~John Maguire. In 1901 BLUEBONNETS become the state flower of Texas. By 1934, it was ordered to delay mowing beside roadways in order to let the flowers grow. Now, TxDot sows about 30,000 pounds of wildflower seeds each year. Snapping family pictures in the flowers is a tradition that’s gone on for many generations and is only illegal if you bother someone’s private property.
