Thank you very much Steelbanger, I really liked that picture and was wondering if I could use it for wallpaper on my desktop for awhile as I amiss spring which we apparently don't have here except for when the bears start moving around more.
Glad you liked it. Too bad we have to reduce the resolution on the net but it will probably work as your desktop pic.
My wife just loves those flowers when they show up every spring. I figured all the ladies here would enjoy seeing them too.
Hello Riflemen-and in the same mind as the originator of this thread I post this hand picked wildflower from the wilds of Oregon for all the fair gals that visit with us fellows here. Life is good, BestLever
I really can't remember what it's called. At one time I took a college class on Oregon plant life and knew all the cool names of stuff but now they are just all "wild floweres" and pine trees :lol: Sorry about that Uncle. They do look like a Lilac but I don't think they are. they are much smaller than the ones I know of. Life is good, BestLever
Off of the top of my head it's buddleia chinensis, in other words the native (to China) version of what western gardeners know as the butterfly bush. It was brought to the Western US in the 1800's by Chinese immigrants and naturalized quite well...
Miss Tiger and flower lovers-Each year I take my wife, a sister or a grand daughter out to gather wildflowers. They are amazing here. I'll be sure to take pictures this year and post them for those who enjoy them. I may have some pictures already scanned that I can add here. We'll see. Life is good, BestLever
