Now that Spring is here in the northern hemisphere, and Fall is there in the southern hemisphere, I thought it would be nice to share the natural beauty in our part of the world. It’s Spring in Texas, and this is why the Bluebonnet is our state flower.
Please do! I know that caladiams (misspelled) come from Florida because a lady at the plant shop was looking for the bulbs. The owner said that there is a shortage because Florida had a drought and 2 hurricanes last year. Just look around. What might be a weed to you will be beautiful to us because we don’t have them growing wild!
Haha that’s soo true my dear! I get the same responses from my elder sister! She often says…I can’t believe my little sis is 21!!? I say, well, “I know but I am still your baby sis! Right!?” And…I wanna say the same to you Ostara! Even if your grandkids are now big, they are still your little munchkins! (And they are quite luckyy to have youu!)
Fabulous idea and that picture of amazing. I’m going to quote a seasoned photographer when he was judging a photography contest “Whoever took this picture definitely has the eye”
The random stuff I remember
We don’t have as many wildflowers as we used to. I actually can’t think of seeing them anywhere except for a hill smack in middle of a busy area with something you wouldn’t usually expect to see in some random spot. I’ll check if they are still in bloom
What a lovely field of flowers.
In central Florida, we see a lot of hibiscuses, some amaryllis, and once in a while angel trumpets.
Now in Western New York, you can see Queen Anne’s lace, like baby’s breath, only much bigger and considered a weed. The Joyce Road Neighborhood: Wildflower - Queen Anne's Lace
Awwww little buggu! Here, we call little sweet honey-buns as buggu out of intense love & affection…it means, well, I dunno! I think the sunflowers would grow even more magickally and rapidly by the mere touch of those tiny caring hands of your 6 year old angel!
This is very true! I know we end up with a lot of common nightshade around my yard. I have to watch for it so I can pull it up so the dogs don’t eat it. It makes some really pretty flowers! I’ll keep an eye out!
I purchased some belladonna seeds that I was going to plant in the back of my property. The directions say you need to put the seeds in water and keep them in the refrigerator for 2 weeks. Not sure if I want to put toxic seeds in my refrigerator! Lol!
