  1. Whew! That’s a relief! We take a picture in the bluebonnets every year and inevitably one of the grandkids picks them. LOL!

    These are very similar to the Bluebells we get here in Yorkshire, I think they are 2 different flowers though. They are both beautiful flowers and I can understand why people want to pick them. I don’t have to feel guilty if I pick one in Texas if it is not illegal!

    These bluebonnets are so pretty! The maroon colored ones are even prettier. I don’t think I’ve ever seen this in Vancouver before, probably due to the climate. Not sure why anyone would want to pick them though, not a big fan when people remove plants or animals from their natural habitat. Perhaps the state should make it illegal haha

    These look very like the bluebells we have in the UK. In the UK they are protected and you aren’t allowed to pick them either. They do look stunning to see when they are in bloom and you are walking through a forest with them in.

  5. The Bluebonnets looks beautiful and it’s interesting how they’ve developed a maroon coloured one too. Good to know that it’s not illegal to pick them, but as you rightly said, legal or illegal, never a good idea to pick flowers in general. One of the reasons why they are so special is probably because they are allowed to grow on their own and again replenish the soil. Thanks for all the info.

    I’ve never been to Texas but these beautiful flowers look very similar to what grows in the UK. I don’t know why anyone would want to pick them, it would spoil the scenery and be such a shame. I’d never heard of the Aggiebonnet – what an unusual name! Interesting read thanks for sharing!

    I didn’t know about Blue Bonnet and just did a quick google search on it and on the first page I came across, the Blue Bonnet Rattle Snake only to figure out that’s its a fake story!!! Whoa!!! That said, the flowers looks incredibly beautiful. The entire landscape filled with these blue beauties looks splendid!

      That is a scary photo, isn’t it? I should address that in the post. Thanks for mentioning it. There are surely others who have found that creepy photo as well!! Thanks for letting me know.

  8. They’re beautiful! They kind of remind me of a flower we have here in the UK (not sure what it’s called, though), but not quite. I do understand why people want to pick them, but I always think it’s a bit pointless – I’d much rather admire them while I’m there, than take them home with me.

  9. Those flowers look so pretty indeed. I guess it’s natural instinct to want to pick them. But like you said, you need to refrain from doing so. You got to let nature as it is and not try to destroy it!
