Texas police officers are celebrating their state's biggest wildflower bloom in a decade by having a bit of fun with their other brothers in blue: the bluebonnet.

As spring fever begins to creep in across the country, the #BackTheBLUEbonnets challenge is taking Texas police departments by storm, and the photographic evidence is an absolute delight.

Police departments are using the hashtag to share hilarious photos of their officers posing with the state flower. Some officers have chosen to pose seductively with the pretty blue blooms, while others have opted for more comedic approaches to the challenge: holding donuts, sipping from Whataburger cups, and prancing in the wide-open Texas fields. Even the K-9s are getting in on the action! Trust us, a quick search of the hashtag on Facebook and Twitter will not disappoint.

Now this is a social media challenge we can get behind!
