|Flowers at night|
Wednesday, May 23, 2012
Still here, still tired, still taking a sabbatical from just about everything (including blogging it seems). I have been working in the yard a bit, reading a bit, watching garbage on tv a bit, sleeping a bit (though not as much as I'd like), writing a bit, and playing with the new-to-me camera a bit. I took this shot on my patio at night, trying out some new settings and lenses. I'm pretty happy with it, but can't for the life of me remember the name of the plant. Two hours thumbing through gardening books and surfing the net hasn't left me any the wiser. Can someone enlighten me? It is a perennial, grows about three feet tall on long stems with paired leaves along the length and rows of these flowers hanging along the underside of each stem.
