So we are down here in South Texas where everything is green and the wildflowers grow like wildfire. I have rekindled my love affair with flowers. I now have a lion’s ear–which is fuzzy like lamb’s ear but is bright orange like cheetos:

Here is my passion flower I picked up on Weds:

and here is my “teacup hibscus” which I have only ever found at one nursery. Usually people have never seen or heard of this beauty but talk to the greenhouse owner and he talks as if they are as common as can be.
see the tiny flower blooming out of the center? Isn’t that awesome?!?

Who needs petunias when you can have crazy looking flowers like these? That was a bit sarcastic–I love purple petunias more than I care to admit but my point is…wait, did I have a point? Oh yes….my flowers make me happy!

I worry about the environment. I cloud gaze often. I dream of the sea. Doodler. Waitress. Nomad of sorts. River swimmer. I have a small westie named Lulu that I sleep with like a stuffed animal. And maybe one day they will say, "and who was she really anyway?"

    These are all amazing! I love how different they are!

    I still stick with petunias, though, as they live through anything, LOL!

    Hi there

    those lions ears grow wild on my farm and they are caller Leonoris leonortus -sp? but the common name in africa for them is Wilde Dagga – I guess the leaves look like dagga leaves.
