Texans in Bloom

The Texas Legislature named the bluebonnet as the state flower on March 7, 1901. They later discovered that there are actually five varieties of bluebonnets in Texas, so they are all the state flowers. What even Texans might not know is that the state flower has a smell, at least in large bunches. Check them out at the Oliver Nature Park, just don’t step on them or there will be fewer bluebonnets next year.
