Purple Passion: Flower of the Day, Feb 25, 2018


I admit.  This is a made-up name.  I have no idea what flower this is. It was photographed in a streetside stall on Valentines Day in La Manzanilla, Mexico.  That’s all the clues I have to give.

Not a Clematis or a Butterfly Bush: Flower of the Day, Feb 6, 2018

You did it, Cee!  It is a petrea volubilit, commonly known as a queen’s wreath or sandpiper vine! I am so happy to finally know the name of this bush. Now I need to find a way to remember its name. I owe you one.


I still can’t figure out what flower this is that grows beside the stairs up to Martin’s Restaurant in La Manzanilla, Mexico.  They are long sprays about a foot long.  The single flowers turn pale brown and papery and can be used dried. I’d love to know what they are.

Hibiscus? Flower of the Day, Dec 18, 2016


Doesn’t look much like a hibiscus to you?  It is a macro of the center of the calyx after the flower has withered and fallen off.  It was just so intriguing to me that I had to post it.  It reminds me of something, but I can’t quite put my mind’s finger on what it is.


Coxcomb: Flower of the Day, Sept 1, 2016

IMG_0693Thanks, Christine Goodnough, for jogging my memory re/ the name of this beauty  from my friend Patty’s garden in Wyoming. I knew an animal was involved in its name, but couldn’t for the life remember what it was until you solved the mystery.
