2011/083: Rainflowers

At least that’s what we called them when we were kids, and if you picked one, it would rain the next day.

  7. I wonder who’s been picking the ‘snow’ flowers, then, in my area! I wish they’d stop!

    Cute little suckers you got there… πŸ˜‰

  8. We’ve got them here, too. (Not yet, unfortunately.) I think they’re called Spring Beauties? Just looked them up in the flower book. Yep, they have those stripes.

    • Thanks for looking up the name. I couldn’t remember what they were really called. Was there a botanical/latin name, too? Pretty sure the name on the sign had something to do with water.

  9. I love these cuties! And they make a nice header. Are they wild?

    • Um, well… in my yard they are (but they look a little different, more blue). These I found at the Fort Worth Botanic Garden.

        lol! I won’t bother you too much with it on my blog but I can’t say the same for Facebook.

  11. Love your new header – those are beautiful. I have not noticed them here either. Maybe that’s why it’s so rainy, because someone picked them all!

    • Nah, I think you just live in the wrong state πŸ˜‰

    • LOL I looked for some in my yard yesterday, and couldn’t find any, so I don’t have any to pick.

  13. Dear Hubby

    Does mowing count as picking?
