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. :)

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! : )

Love the bluebonnets!

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

What a beauty, Steph!

Comment by Tony Carroll on September 6, 2012 at 1:10pm

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. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on September 6, 2012 at 12:59pm

Tony, that shot of bluebonnets really stirred memories of central Texas. If I remember correctly, Indian paintbrush or Prairie fire was  propagated through Lady Birds' influence. It is so pretty.

I had no idea birds provided such travel arrangements.
