FOTD: Late Bloomer

Posted on Updated on

I have no idea what this is nor can I tell if it is a flowering shrub or a small tree. It doesn’t mind cool weather but, sadly, the hard freeze the next day destroyed all the blooms.

FOTD: Lots of Daisies

Posted on

I had intended to do a Shutterbug Saturday post but, I’ve spent the entire day battling my laptop. I curse Microsoft.

Instead, here are some late season, happy daisies. ~Vic

I will have to figure this one out, later. ~Vic

Update: After much digging, I found this to be a Salvia Guaranitica or Hummingbird Sage.

FOTD: Tree of Lavender

Posted on Updated on

This is a tree on the church grounds. It’s huge and gorgeous. I have no idea what kind, though. ~Vic

Addendum: This is a Rhododendron, courtesy of Love in Australia. I would encourage anyone that needs assistance with figuring out what kind of flower they have to contact him:
Love’s Flower Identification Service.

It’s free, for the moment. That might change in the future. He is very, very good.

I haven’t a clue what kind of flower this is but, I will dig around and see what I can find.

Addendum: This looks very much like a Forsythia. ~Vic

This is a Chrysanthemum that I planted back in 2014. It must have been very happy where I put it because it was huge two years later. It finally gave up the next year. ~Vic

These beauties have their own timetable. They bloom early, even when it is still cold…or snowing, no less. They are quite happy underneath Mr. Sugar Maple. ~Vic

I was intending to do a Movie Monday but, I’m struggling with stuff older than 100 years. I will tend to that later. ~Vic

Addendum: With help from fellow blogger Love, the below photo is a Hellebore. Thanks, Love.

FOTD: Unusual

Posted on Updated on

Out on one of my walks, several of these happy things were poking out through the wrought iron fence. I haven’t the first clue what this is but, it’s flower-ish, I suppose. It is quite striking. If anyone knows what this is, SPEAK. ~Vic

Update: Thanks to my friend Love’s Flower Identification Service, this strange flower is a Euphorbia, or Spurge, which is the same family that Poinsettias come from. This particular variety is either an amygdaloides variant called ‘Robbiae’ or, a Redwing Charam, which is a hybrid of amygdaloides and martinii. I can’t tell. Thanks, Love!

I understand that fellow blogger Cee has a Flower of the Day challenge. I may jump into that, soon. But, for today, I offer the Picture of the Day or Photo of the Day. Either works…:
