Purple Thistle, Flower of the Day, Aug 21, 2019


The hills of Montenegro were filled with these flowers. They look like purple thistles…but I’m not sure that they were. The air was full of the fuzz that carried their seeds. Click on photos to enlarge.

New Kid on the Block, Hibiscus: Flower of the Day, Aug 17, 2019

We planted this new little hibiscus a few months ago and it died back almost immediately. I thought it was a goner, but last week I walked down to the lower garden and was surprised by two new large perfect blooms!! One of nature’s surprises.


Cee, there is no prompt up yet for Aug 17 and we leave Rome early tomorrow to catch our ship. Could you establish a link for me, please, and I’ll owe you one.  xo J
