Sand Verbena, one of our rugged, native, little coastal wildflowers
This little bush is beginning to flower in my garden
Here is a stock photo of some trailing petunias I have. They have had a rough year for some reason and I thought they died, but they are growing back now.
But it’s a May Bush , and we are in August .
Spring in September You’ve got it all mixed up.
I like plants with trumpets , especially the pink angel trumpets , but beware , every part of the plant is poisonous .
Caladium , Burning Heart ???
You’re right! Now that prompts my memory, a caladium is correct. Thankyou for IDing it for me. I’d love to have one myself. Saw this one at a show last year I think.
So beautiful,I love the scent too.
We have one that smells similar to fejoa fruit
I never knew tortoises had such particular tastes !
(Edit,much to such…oh auto correct,how you test my patience )
Reminds me of Caramel pie!!! … such yummy memories
I used to bring a pot of water to the boil, drop in the can of condensed milk, and let it gently boil - oh, I forget for how long - then remove from stove, let cool before opening and voila! It was now caramel!! Then this was used to fill a pie shell. Once, I forgot to wait … punctured the lid with the can opener and caramel shot out and up in a stream!!! Funny now
Which reminds me of another tin rattling in a pan of boiling water .
The dreaded Kaolin Poultice .
My childhood doctor seemed to me to think that a kaolin poultice was a universal remedy .
When I had mumps she prescribed it .
Other times she prescribed it .
I remember saying to my mum as she took me to the doctor’s : " She won’t tell you to put a poultice on it will she ?"
I should hope not!! THAT is sure an old can!
