Your garden must be a 'slice of Heaven', Carolyn!!! What a beautiful floral...very unique (to me) and lovely!!!

The fainting episode was due to migraine medication.

A certain tree (don't know which one) produces 'cast-off seedlings' and when the wind gets them....they spin and twirl to the ground. Here in the states...we call these little seedlings 'spinners'.

I hope you are well, My Dear Friend!!!

I am coping...taking the good days with the not so good.

Glad to see John posting... I have been praying for everyone!! #9455054

What an interesting flower. I see Bromeliads in Hawaii and find them difficult to photograph because of their shiny surfaces. This is a very unique specimen. #9460125
