What is included with this book?


Whether wandering down a Texas back-country road or passing by a vacant city lot, all around you grow untamed beauties, each with a story to tell. These are the wildflowers of Texas, demonstrating a tenacious spirit and diversity only topped by the Lone Star State's people. A children's book for children of ALL ages, Bloomin' Tales brings the history of both plants and people to life with exciting legends passed down from those who chose to call Texas home: Scottish, French, Mexican, English, and the original Texans, the tribes of the Native Americans. Let award-winning author and garden writer Cherie Foster Colburn introduce you to seven of her favorite plant legends from the hundreds she's unearthed creating school gardens across Texas. Artist Joy Fisher Hein, winner of numerous awards for her lively paintings, illuminates detail as only a Texas Master Naturalist could. Look for hidden pollinators, companion plants, habitat and fun facts for each of the featured wildflowers.These are more than simple stories explaining how a plant got its name though; you'll also find tales of TEXAS' heritage, a people learning to adapt to an unforgiving land just as these flowers have done for millions of years. People say the folks in Texas have some awfully tall hats. In BLOOMIN' TALES, you'll find the stories of their wildflowers are even TALLER!
