I looked and looked for a yellow rose photo – you know the song ‘The yellow rose of Texas’ -I just went to the Texas A&M University archives to get the words, I was going to give you a line of two, and wow it is so politically incorrect in today’s world that I had to drop that Idea…. I don’t have a photo of a yellow rose anyway.
In Missouri City we have so many parks, and many of them have a wetland or grassland reclamation, so Spring is a delight of wild flowers. I’ve done a couple of posts on these flowers and look forward to not only showing you more, but finding their names also. I have to go shopping for a book or two. In the past posts (hypertext above), I have used almost my whole archive collection of yellow Flowers, wild and cultivated, in south Texas, so I had to go with what I could find this week at the garden center -
I had a beautiful plant on the front steps last fall, and here in proud declaration, standing tall, the first leaf, proof of life after this very cold winter.
And a new spring shoe to start my summer exercise program….
