Thanks for stopping by, Sal. I'll add your name to the pot.

Sandra Nachlinger said...

Probably not. Lupinus texensis is native to Texas (and a few surrounding states). Somehow I don't think they'd thrive in the UK's climate!

Sandra Nachlinger said...

Thank you. I had lots of fun taking the photos.

What fun to see photos of the places in your book! I love the close-up of the bluebonnet. Did you know that blue bonnets are also a Scots cap?

No, I didn't know that. Interesting!

Love the Bluebonnets!

Sandra Nachlinger said...

Me, too. Since I no longer live in Texas, I miss the rolling hills covered in blue. But I do get to go back and visit every once in a while!

Patricia Kiyono said...

I'm about halfway through the book and loving it!

I grew up in the country outside of Pittsburgh. These pictures held a little bit of nostalgia for me, especially that dirt road. I really want to read this book.

Sandra Nachlinger said...

I"m glad you liked my photos. That road runs through some property my brother owns in North Texas. It's a lovely area.

Sandra Nachlinger said...

Thank you for stopping by, Carol.

Is it weird that I like the building and road more than flowers?

Sandra Nachlinger said...

I agree with you! When I look at the picture of the road, I wonder where it leads. I like the building because it's obviously old, plus I like the water tower in the background. Yes, the flowers are nice but they're not unusual. So, if that's weird, I am too!
