Thanks for the explanation of the Gyandromorph. Thanks for sharing the memory looklover.

That's a rare bird Ruth! And I have unfortunately not seen one in the wild. I hope to keep birding and see one someday! They are so unique.

Here's a page about them.

Booklover, the bluebird is just splendid! Such a beautiful creature. I do hope the come back again; haven't seen one since I was a child.

I love the bluebird Booklover!

My Trumpet Vines didn't take 5 years to bloom - not exactly sure on the time - but I think a year or so - maybe 2.

Joan, I have been told it takes a trumpet vine 5 years to bloom.

Comment by Steph S. on September 6, 2012 at 5:56pm

Oh wow! Lots of lovely pictures posted here today!

I love the Texas Bluebonnets Tony - much appreciated!

Thanks for the Sandhill Crane picture Joan - very cool!

Oh and Joan your Bluebonnets are lovely too. I really love the mix of colors in the photo.

How wonderful to see all these beautiful photos!

Right booklover, maybe they have peanuts on the bird airline - very cute! : )

Those are beautiful, Joan.

As long as the wildflowers are indigenous, I think it would work, and be beautiful.

Comment by Joan Denoo on September 6, 2012 at 1:01pm

I wonder if we could do the same things as Lady Bird did when she was First Lady, arrange to have wildflower seeds scattered along roads? I'll have to think about local wildflowers that tolerate our hot summers and cold winters.
