I mentioned in one of my recent blogs that its not illegal to pick bluebonnets. However, I strongly recommend against it and since we are talking about Bluebonnets let me share with you where you can find this official treasured Texas flower. One of the largest patches of Texas Bluebonnets and Indian Paint Brushes that I have seen in a number of years are located just a short drive from Austin or Bastrop. If you live in Austin take the enjoyable drive out Highway 71 towards Bastrop and about nine miles from the airport you will find one of the largest most beautiful fields of colorful Bluebonnets mixed with the native Indian Paint Brushes you have ever seen. If you live in Bastrop or somewhere between Bastrop and Houston take Highway 71 towards Austin and just look for the cars lined up on the shoulder of the roadway and be careful when pulling off the roadway because there are lots of small children eager to make their way to the Bluebonnet fields.
Its really great to see the excitement of many families on this Easter Sunday taking some memorable photographs of their children and grandchildren and I’m no exception. And don’t be surprised if you’re asked to take a few pictures for the single parents with their children because it happened to me several times and I was glad to help. I can see these family pictures hitting Facebook before they even drive away. These Bluebonnets and Indian Paint Brushes make awesome backdrops and can only be found in Texas. So if you’re traveling for the Easter Holiday’s take my advice and visit this little bluebonnet treasure between Austin and Bastrop and drop me a line, post your favorite family picture and share your thoughts.
