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.


Surprise Gift: Flower of the Day Aug 4, 2016

This little lady came up volunteer this year right where I can see her every time I leave my house by the kitchen door.  I love the surprise of seeing her for the second time this year. She is just two inches across at her widest part. If she’d been any place else but where she is, I would have overlooked her for sure.  Thanks, nature, for another surprise!
(It’s obvious the bees have been loving her as well.)

Naked Lady? Flower of the Day, June 21, 2016

I’m not sure what this lovely little flower is that volunteered its presence near my kitchen door.  If you know, please give me your verdict.

Version 2

I love the bud nubs in the background of this photo as much as the blossoms on the front. I took this down in the garden and should remember what this flower is but alas, I don’t.
