Question Does anyone dig up flowers on the side of the road?

I do!! I walk with my dog and 1) spot flowers to come back and get on the 4 wheeler with shovel in hand and 2) pick up aluminum cans while I'm out. I then come back with my loot and plant them. Everyone says I have such pretty flowers and they were all FREE. The other day I found some white daffodils that I did not have so yes, now they are here. I have never seen anyone else do it but was wondering if any of ya'll do it. I also found a nice pair of pink gloves while walking and they are now my new "flower planting gloves". I have found all kinds of things on the road.

I've stopped and picked them but never dug any up. It has crossed my mind but never when I'm where the flowers are and have digging tools.
Kinda like new wiper blades. You never remember you need them until it rains.

Yeah I guess living in Arkansas we have an advantage. Flowers growing in ditches and beside the road. I'm always up for digging and/or pulling.

I think that in my state it might be illegal to take wildflowers... not sure. You might want to check before you pick.

Off topic question but DH and I are planning a trip to Arkansas, do you or anyone else happen to know where to start looking for a good price hotel, restaurants, etc. Also what places to visit.

By the way I do not have a green thumb at all, DH does but I have to take care of the plants and of course they all die .

please be aware that some plants (flora) are on the endangered species list and you can receive a ticket with a stiff fine "DO NOT dig up sunflowers along the Kansas Turnpike" BTDT. Learned my lesson.

My uncle said it was illegal to pick them but he may have been kidding with me.

I'd say most of these flowers are not wild as you can see that they have managed to drift from homesteads, etc. I do get wildflowers too though. Not illegal here in Arkansas unless you are on the Buffalo river or other park land, then big NO NO.

Your uncle is right you can not pick any state flower It can be a big fine, also in some states you can not pick cactus

MY MIL has done this for years. I live in the city, so I'm sure I'd face a hefty fine if I got caught digging flowers! I would LOVE to dig some of the pampass grasses around here though! There are some pretty fancy on/off ramps around here, they look more like they belong in a 2 million dollar housing division, than on the side of the road! I wish the state would spend more $$$ on fixing pot holes than they do on landscaping

That is too funny! My Mom and sisters are all like that! We have a lake place out in the middle of no where in Arkansas and everyone was there for Easter. My sisters, Mom and I were walking around my yard, digging up pieces of things and my brother finally said "Susuz, step away from the shovel and no one will get hurt!" They know I do dig up things all the time, as there are old homeplaces all out in the woods. There are several types of wildflowers that are protected in Arkansas, and you are not supposed to dig them in state parks. Private land though is OK as long as you have permission of the land owner and I haven't ever had a problem with by the road as they spray herbicides and kill them all the time here.

We live in the NW corner of Arkansas, Fayetteville. For the poster that was asking for vacation advice the Arkansas Dept. of Parks and Tourism just had their new flyer in the Sunday paper here. If I can find it I will send it to you or you can log on and have one sent to your home. (This may have been answered in a post but I stopped to write at the above quote)

And I keep a shovel, bucket, gloves, flannel back tablecloth (to put down in the back of my car and place things on) clippers, floral knife in my suburban too! (OK, I grew up in the florist business so that may explain part of that, I love to clip branches, etc.) We call those things you find their scientific names: Bytheroada, also known as Cutbytharoada or Roadsideia.

I was just going to start a thread to see who else mushroom hunts. Love love morels. Love hunting them too. Haven't found any yet this year though. Went over the weekend. May apples aren't big enough I don't thin, give it a week maybe.

Kimmyann123- if you have any morels you better believe I'd want to trade (can you ship 'em?).
