Here is that wonderful bush/shrub that I saw in Texas. I was playing with my camera and found out I can transfer pictures to the card--I don't need the cable. Unfortunately I did end up deleting a bit in the learning process, so I guess more Texas pictures will have to wait until November. I was told this is called Mexican bird of paradise and they cut it to the ground each winter....I am going to start some seeds and see what luck I have with it here in Kansas. I'll probably have to plant it in a large pot and let it winter over in my garage...we'll see. It is a stunning plant though!
OK, I guess I need to head to work...Have a great day!
