The thread titled Flowers of Supertopo seems to have vanished.

It is "no longer available for reply."

That's just a shame.

*tsk*

But flowers are ephemeral, are they not?

Why would someone delete a thread (well, their first post in a thread) about flowers? Bizarre.

A beautiful cheerful rebirth to the flowers.

Anita, by searching 'purple flower bush' I learn that the flowers you asked about are a type of budleja sometimes called butterfly bush. They smell like honey to me.




edit:


Anita! Did you know how funny that amputated bush would look, here? Why did you take that picture?

There are butterfly bushes all around the Chateau. I'll see if I can get some pictures.

And yes, they do attract butterflies.

Anita, do you know why they call it a "moss rose"?

I have a Rugosa in my yard with flowers just like that one that are so fragrant. A couple years ago there was a ball of moss growing on one of the stems. Last year there were two or three. This year there are a dozen or so of these mossy clumps. My neighbor is a gardener and he has never seen such a thing.

My ugly old gray house in El Sobrante last year. It used to have a single climbing rose bush which covered that fence with hundreds of blooms every year and was apparently not appreciated by the new slumlord. Everything's GONE now!

It is sooooo bittersweet to see this shot.

I need flowers to cheer me up. :0(
