    Bluebonnets (Texas state flower) have been blooming for the past couple of weeks, but are now starting to show in full bloom. They always bring to mind a quote from John Nance Garner ("Catus Jack").

    He was a member of the Texas legislature, House of Representatives, Speaker of the House, and Vice-President under FDR. Got his nickname while lobbying for the Prickly Pear Catus flower to be the state flower.

    Regrading the bluebonnet he argued, "It ain't nothing but a d@#! stinkweed. Anything that doesn't taste sweet in the mouth of a cow doesn't deserve to be the Texas state flower."

    He did have a way with words. He also said the only demontion he ever took in his life was when he resigned as Speaker and became Vice-President. :lol:

    Saw our first hummingbirds of the season tonight. We were sitting on the patio after dinner (supper), sucking on glasses of wine (as we are want to do) and a couple of Ruby-throated hummingbirds buzzed us. :eek:

    We usually see them before now, but it's been a really odd year for migration. We saw most of the same birds during the winter, but not at the same times. :confused: Feeders are out so they should be staying close by.

    Ok, FINALLY!- hitting 50F most days now, and nights in the 30'sF. I'll TAKE IT! :p

    My hive is flying, but not seeing much pollen at all yet. No blooming trees or flowers yet except crocuses and skunk cabbage I think. Everything still grey and brown and bare branches.
    Yikes, where are the flowers already??
    Gotta paint my hive boxes this week.
