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?

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?

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.

Wayno: moss rose because the buds are covered in fuzz that looks like moss, I believe.
I have several rugosas as well. My grandmother used to make jam out of their petals. I have hardy roses as I'm too lazy to winterize hybrid teas but I caved in and got a hybrid tea as well as an old English rose this spring, so I better take care of them come November.

MH2: I photographed most of my garden this past spring to keep track of things, and because I had nothing better to do ;)

My delphinium is over 5 feet tall and should bloom soon. I'll post some more pics later.

Hey, the neighborhood was okay with a lot of no traffic privacy.
That house in El Sobrawney sold for twice the price we paid after only four years in the late 70s...finally!
Real estate bloom?

Anyway, has anyone made the mistake I just made? Went to the search, looked for Flowers of ST, got nothing, of course, and I had to laugh at myself.

To seed, of course.

Except in the Southern Hemisphere.

The donini plant, Alpinismus donini, has a unique trait of shedding its years in its high Rocky Mountains habitat and its shed seeds are carried south by migrating birds.

These seeds resist digestion and are eventually sown in greatest numbers in the higher regions of Patagonia, which seems like a very long ways to fly before taking a dump. But that's just my personal hygienic fetish commenting. YOU potential readers must be the judges for yourselves.

The quest to find the answers to a botanical mystery that had scientists going insane to try explain how it grew in both places in two different times of the year, in opposing cycles, is an adventure which you will never forget. (The section about tracing the various species of birds' differing migratory paths is especially riveting.)

Order your copy now, in advance, please. There will be an avalanche of subscriptions we are certain.

Fred Beckey & Wayne Merry both endorse the book, two thumbs up!

Send cash, check or money order to me, Mouse From Merced, here in Middle Earth, by return mail, and I'll keep your request on file. You will be mailed a chit for each copy. The books will be sent ASAP after the printers have done. Each copy will be personally autographed by donini.

There is no title yet, but think one up and mail it in with your cash, check or money order for only 39.95, shipping incl.. No tax, we got it covered like a Jack Tackle belay!

We may decide to have a drawing BY donini HIMSELF, the man who led the expedition to find the answer to the question, "Hey, WTF?"

Or not: This will depend on when donini returns from his LATEST HEROIC TRUE-LIFE ADVENTURE, kinda.

Juan, that Aprile with it's shoures soote...

Official Catholic accounts state that on the morning of December 9, 1531, Juan Diego saw an apparition of a young girl at the Hill of Tepeyac, near Mexico City. Speaking to him in Nahuatl, the girl asked that a church be built at that site in her honor; from her words, Juan Diego recognized the girl as the Virgin Mary. According to the account, Diego told his story to the Spanish Archbishop of Mexico City, Fray Juan de Zumárraga, who instructed him to return to Tepeyac Hill, and ask the "lady" for a miraculous sign to prove her identity. The first sign was the Virgin healing Juan's uncle. The Virgin told Juan Diego to gather flowers from the top of Tepeyac Hill. Although December was very late in the growing season for flowers to bloom, Juan Diego found Castilian roses, not native to Mexico, on the normally barren hilltop. The Virgin arranged these in his peasant cloak or tilma. When Juan Diego opened his cloak before Bishop Zumárraga on December 12, the flowers fell to the floor, and on the fabric was the image of the Virgin of Guadalupe.--straight from Wiki, but without the little numbers

Aaahhhhhhhh . . . delicious . . . wonderful . . . my day is now perfect.

It is raining big, soft raindrops landing with little whooshes on my hollyhocks outside the window. Some land with a solid thunk on the deck. It is cool and the the crickets are singing. And I have dozens of beautiful flowers to scroll among and smile. Thank you all for your wonderful eyes and your generous sharing. Just perfect. How delightful. :)

Thank you, thank you, thank you. What a perfect ending to a peaceful Sunday.

I found a bower out of the sunlight;
And I looked around with total delight.
The glaring sun was gone from my sight;
And the heat reduced to what was just right.

but i love seeing the GOLDEN ROD in bloom here now, in the michigan fields...


you can tell the 'month' by all the wildflowers, though they DO overlap INTO the next months, etc, you can still tell, pretty well...


just got done with lots of queen anne's lace, in july... got the golden rod now... :) still have a bit of chicory around, from july, though and bits of the lace, but they are less and less as the august golden rod, addorns all the fields...

(had lot of wild lilies, in july, too) ...

Did you find the wind to be a big problem?

That's always mine, it seems, causing blurred images, even when using a tripod.

Fast shutter speed is called for, and patience.

We are better served by nature there.

Some old friends have been planting daffodils on their 5 acre property for the last 40+ years. One year they planted 35,000 bulbs, and currently have planted over 1 million bulbs.

My boss lives in the same area, started a little later and he currently has about 150,000 daffodils on his 8 acres. Toughest looking hands of any executive I know.

It is truly incredible when they are blooming.

This motel was used as a location in The Dead Pool, a Dirty Harry film.

I checked when I was there.
I found no floaters in their pool.
In fact, it was empty.
I found no skaters using it, either.

Incredible wildflowers are going off in Cache Creek. Last summer's fire prepped the ground for a megabloom.

Hey Stahlbro
that top plant is native Ice Plant or Mesembryanthemum crystallinum, named for the water cells in the leaf surfaces

It is originally from South Africa, but has seeds that float in Salt Water, and now has spread almost world wide on suitable coast lines.

I grew some from seed for a while, which is easy to harvest from summer dormant plants along the Newport back bay. Not that great of a pot plant.
I just read that's it's edible!

There is another similar species Mesembryanthemum nodiflorum which has the same story, it's not as common at the back bay.
