Congrats Slick. That bluish color is really vivid.
A little red something in there and you could make a flag.

Thanks! I took that pic close to 10 years ago when we had a patch of them in the pasture. The white Bluebonnets are not seen very often. I appreciate the votes!

CB is that a rose bush in your picture? Reason I ask is when my mom died she had one like that in her yard. Would have hundreds of small blooms that turned yellow the 2nd or 3rd day and smelled awesome. AND it had no thorns...we've been trying to find out what kind it is but nobody around seems to have any idea.

Are you wanting CB to plant on on your grave?? I figure that is the only way you two would get along.

It is exactly as you stated have no idea what it is neither does the Mrs.
Mrs said she will start trying to root some cuttings for you. She said if she gets them to take, can mail them to you in like November.

Appreciate it but we've already done that. Everybody in the family has one now. We just call it "Mama's Rose". No idea what it is. Many thanks though.

Well now that is a fine thought. He would probably substitute a half dozen bull nettles though.
