Spring is here Scavenger Hunt

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 -DSC_4467



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….


  1. Gosh, Ginger, three excellent images! The first has a dreamy quality I love. You will love exercising in those shoes!

  2. I loooove that leave and also your new shoes, i would wear them too <3

  3. great post Ginger! love the leaf and the pink shoe is awesome!! can you run faster in them? :-)

  4. Nice macro on that cactus. A new pair of shoes can get the exercise program off to a good start. Rebecca

  5. A nice collection. I love the idea of new shoes to get back into exercising.

  6. Now you've got me curious about the Yellow Rose of Texa, lol. Love those images. I'm not bold enough to wear pink sneakers but they sure are a lovely color.

    1. hi Ann, this potted plant is a tropical and dies back on its own with temperatures under 40 f. I cut the dead stuff out so new growth could come from the roots.
