Please pass the Clematis oops I mean the pepper. Once used many years ago as a substitute for black pepper. This week is this Clematis gone to seed. In all its toxic feathery glory. By the way I do not recommend eating this as you will experience internal bleeding if consumed in large amounts. I really like this version of the climbing beauty as you rarely give it any attention after all the pretty petals are gone. I hope everyone's holiday shopping is going great! You still have 8 days left.

This was a rare find indeed. Only in the coldest of winter days could I find this beauty in a temperature regulated greenhouse. She stuck out like a sore thumb! :) For this week I present to you Strelitzia reginae well known as The Bird of Paradise. I don't know about you but I would love to be somewhere this bird flocks naturally.

This is named after such a tasty morsel. This Friday we have Justicia brandegeana with no butter The Shrimp Plant. Please enjoy! With such a hectic week I am sorry I am late. What with Don's new car, Saxophone lessons, New Moon opening, a teenager birthday and a heart broken seven year old that thinks her older sister gets "Everything" Oh my! Thanks ahead of time for understanding.

For this spooky week of Halloween here is a strangely named South American flower for everyone to see. I'd hate to ask this little guy Trick or Treat? Do you think he would suck your blood?

Amaryllidaceae Haemanthus albiflos also named "White Blood Lily"

While visiting with my mother-in-law, my husband and I stopped with her to photograph a few of the remaining flowers in the English garden she tends. I found this bloom that I have to share with you. Here posing patiently is Nigilla also known as "Love in the Mist" hope all you enjoy this small fella. I know it was love at first sight for me.

This week I have a sad kind of flower for those of you that follow history. I present to you Euphorbia Milii also known as "The Crown of Thorns" She flowers all year long to show her beauty maybe to seek forgiveness. Not only would you steer clear of her sap, it causes a skin reaction very similar to poison ivy. It is also very toxic and used to kill and stun fish. Please enjoy this sharp and toxic beauty.
