Where Have All The Flower Children Gone? Apparently, Texas

Springfield, Mo., Aug 18, 2010--An iconic symbol of the 1960s--the VW covered in daisies--is making a comeback and not where you might think.

TheDaisyPeople.com today announced the top ten states for vehicle daisy sales, and Texas leads the pack.

Owner/manager T.L. “Teal” Mitchell suggests, tongue in cheek, “Texas is turning liberal.” More seriously she proposes it may be the reverse. “For many people,” she says, “decorating their car with daisies is a soft protest against their neighbors’ politics.”

Mitchell also notes daisies are frequently purchased as a fashion statement, for a grandchild’s new car, or to dress up golf carts, lawn mowers and even kayaks.

After Texas, California is second in daisy sales, proving perhaps that many hippies never moved. Of the ones who moved, they may have retired to Florida, which comes in third on the list.

The next four states are Indiana, Michigan, Illinois and Pennsylvania, which suggests many former flower children are aging gracefully in the Rust Belt. Traditional liberal strongholds Massachusetts and New York are 8th and 9th, while North Carolina rounds out the top ten.

Is this a sign Texans will be sitting in, turning on and dropping out anytime soon? Probably not. Sales of bell-bottom pants and tie-dyed shirts are not likely to replace Stetson hats and cowboy boots in the Lone Star State.

But, it appears, deep in the heart of Texas dwells a flower child. Who would have known?
