Show us your Bluebonnets and we’ll show you ours!
Beautiful Spring weather is here and whether you’re a Texas native, or you’re driving through on a road trip, one thing is synonymous with Springtime here in the Lone Star State, and that’s gorgeous fields of bluebonnets popping up on roadways, fields and parks.
Texas Bluebonnets were named as the state flower all the way back in 1901 and serve as a representation of bravery, sacrifice and Texas pride. One little-known fact about Bluebonnets is that Texas was the first state to plant flowers along their highways, which is why travelers from across the country visit Texas in the Springtime to experience the blossoming fields of flowers.
In our mission to promote Scenic Roadways and Cities, we want to encourage our members, followers and friends to continue in the Texas tradition of spreading bluebonnets across our state with our Scenic Texas Bluebonnets campaign!
Every February through April, Bluebonnets provide the perfect backdrop for your family photo-opp and when you share your pictures with us, we’ll send you a FREE packet of bluebonnet seeds to plant in your community. !
