Texas Flower Friday

Today Mini Arty, Mama and I(Mini Jakey) are going to wrap up our Texas visit with a look at some of the  flowers we saw along our journey!




The hotel had a beautimous gazebo surrounded with rose bushes!




The dwarf bottle brush flowers look like the type of fireworks even the real Jakey would like!




There was a ton of Oleander in all shades of pretty colors!




Of course, this flowering plant can be found all over Texas...





Mama really misses the Crepe Myrtle. While it grows all over the Texas Hill Country, it doesn't grow here behind the Redwood Curtain!




There were a variety of creative plant arrangements around Main Street, Marble Falls!




Purple heart(sometimes know as Purple Queen) plants filled some planters...




...and Hibiscus could be found in other containers!




Lots of little rose bushes were everywhere



We saw some yellow bell flowers




...and what we think is some kind of Trumpet flower.




We even saw some little yellow succulent flowers!




Again...not sure if this is trumpet vine with pink flowers...but it sure is pretty!!





Last, but not least, Mama's most favorite Texas flower....


Breathtaking  Lantana in pink and orange!!




We hope y'all have a Groot-y weekend!!




Hop aboard and show us the flowers blooming in your corner of the world (If you don't see the link here, please click HERE to go to our Hoppity page)!!

What a fabulous post! All of your Texas flowers are just beautiful...but my two faves are the bottle brush and the hibiscus. I always know I am in the south when I see them!

Enjoy your weekend!

Crikey ...... Your Mama likes lantana. It's known as a noxious weed here in Australia. Its not native to our country but it really LOVES the conditions and since being introduced has taken over. We really try very hard to get rid of it. Mum always keeps me well away from it as it is known to harbour ticks. We don't like lantana at all in our country/ It is pretty though, aye??
