Guerrilla Primrose




I've been biking by this piece of guerrilla art for a few weeks and think it's so cool. When I got closer to snap a photo, I saw that it says "Forever ladybird," a reference to the passed queen of wildflowers. Not every day I see a pink evening primrose painted by urban artists on the side of a derelict building. Awesome.

That's something I miss. The Woodlands is like a Walt Disney version of a city.

I'd prefer it if it had more character ( or characters as the case may be. )

Hey Sister Bluebird. Does that make me Brother Grackle?

Love your blog and your photos. Wish I could see a bluebird here someday...

It could. Glad you stopped by for a spell. I know that name sounds really Protestant--1970s sort of Jesus Freak. Sort of takes you back to Summer Church Camp dont it? LOL I actually got that name from a song Star Ship Trooper by the band Yes. "Sister Bluebird, Flying High Above."

Right now I feel more like sister chicken-poop. I have to hurry and finish the chicken coop because those cute little chick puffs are growing feathers and occasionally leap out of their enclosure.

Someday when I am rich, I will be considered eccentric.
