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!

From the Author:

In the early 90's, a lady named Zoe Kirkpatrick spoke at a conference I attended and told stories about friends of hers.  These wild characters I'd seen before, but I wasn't intimate with them the way Zoe was.  The stories were bigger than life.   A few were just plain unbelievable.   I wanted to know more.  Stalking her after the conference, I quizzed her, trying to find out how she'd come to know all these tales.  That conference - a Native Plant Society area meeting in Midland, Texas - wasn't the first time I'd heard that many plants have legends attached to them.  After all, Tomie dePaulo's books were some of my daughters' favorites , but it was the first time I heard them as Zoe told them: stories of her old friends, the wildflowers scattered across her West Texas ranch.
