This is my half of the beautiful bouquet from Leslie. I love the mix of old-fashioned flowers and moved it around the house as my activities took me here and there.

Queen’s Tears Bromeliad: FOTD Oct 27, 2019

Little Miracles

This plant is of special significance to me because it grew in profusion from hanging baskets on my porch in Boulder Creek, Ca. For the eighteen years I’ve been in Mexico, I have from time to time looked for it in viveros because it has such a special significance to me, but if it has been there, I’ve overlooked it.  But a few days ago, as I was coming back from my front gate, I noticed this bloom growing from a pot. I have no idea how it got there, but it is the Queen’s Tears Bromeliad I’ve been looking for for eighteen years. Little miracles occur every day. What a pleasure that sometimes they make themselves so obvious that we can’t overlook them.

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.
