Thornbird - a close view
'Thornbird' is a beauty in our garden, but it is one that must be viewed up close to truly appreciate all the blending of colors - at a distance it can look beige or tan.

I now have Thornbird growing in my garden but this picture was taken at Clark Garden in Mineral Wells, Tx on a very windy day.
