This is the original color version of yesterday’s mystery flower. If no one guesses what it is, I’ll publish the solution tonight.

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    Oh thanks for all that color~! Now I know what it is~! It is an English flower called a “brolly” but the French word for it is a Parapluie while in the US it is called A bumbershoot. And the photo was taken in the rain at 10 Downing Street, London, England, by the wife of one Boris Johnson. Is that enough information to give me the prize….?

    MY BROLLY (umbellae) by Boris

    I don’t know how to work my brolly; when I open it, it’s kind of rolley the wind catches it and blows it up catching all the rain and it wont stop.

    The ladies refuse when I offer to share it because they say it gets their hair wet because of the way when I try to open it up the bottom always becomes the top.

    Now I would guess it’s some sort of floor mop, or a gadget to clean and smooth sand (I’ve never seen a shiny plastic umbrella that scrunched up that way!)..
