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.

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.

I didn't take this picture, I found it on the internet.  I just think Bluebirds are adorable. :)

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! : )

Love the bluebonnets!

Cool pic of the birds hitching a ride!  I wonder if they serve peanuts on that airline! ;)

Those are beautiful, Joan.

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