But according to the Texas Department of Public Safety it is not illegal. In no way am I advising for you to go dig up all the bluebonnets you can find, but picking one will not hurt.
In honor of the beautiful bluebonnets, the Ennis Bluebonnet Festival is coming up on April 17-18, 2010. The festival is complete with live music, food, petting zoo, crafts, souvenirs and more.
Bluebonnets bloom across Texas in April and May. Comment below if you have come across the best location for Bluebonnet pictures!
