I think I told you a year or so ago about a jaunt Ric and I took across Texas and about a young “foreign” college girl in a pair of skinny sandals who waded out into a bar ditch to have her photo taken. I did feel that I had to tell her to be very careful, but it was obvious that she just didn’t understand.
This week, Sherri Gunter sent me some photos that reminded me of that beautiful young girl, and I wondered once again if she made her cross-state road trip without incident.
And Why Texans Don’t Pick Them
Yes, they’re the state flower, but that wouldn’t stop a Texan from picking them if he wanted them. No, when it comes to picking bluebonnets, there is a much more important reason why Texans know to leave the state beauty alone.
There’s a lot more than a state flower at risk here, folks!
