Pictorial Potpourri Tuesday Link Up 8 2 2022


Didn't know what this flower was among my wildflowers in the planters so looked it up by using Google picture scan. This came up as a Malope. A beautiful, hardy annual and an old cottage garden favourite. A splendid and easily grown plant for the border, the flowers, which are useful for cutting, are produced in profusion all Summer. A genus of three species in the mallow botanical family. Of the three species, Malope trifida is often used as an ornamental plant. Says in warmer climates it can be a perennial.

Just an interesting tidbit since I really do not know flowers at all. In re-looking at this photo from last week, I wonder if that is a spider on the second bloom. Did not notice when photographing. hmmm

My grandson gets married next month, and his fiance had her bridal shower in what use to be the train depot. Trains stopping are a past era, but the facility is still nice. Trains still roar by, but no longer passenger trains.

I've been waiting to see if this was actually a sunflower growing in my planter. Well, as I'm not a green thumb, and with this hot, hot weather I forgot to water. I skipped a couple days, and it looks so limp and the flowers are as you see. I did water last evening, and it looks more spry, but I'm sure I injured it. Still, it looks pretty, I think. 

Razzy's Summer allergy itch has been in full swing so he had to have a Vet visit. Cannot believe the outragious prices anymore, but he was miserable. So far meds are helping. He was not a happy camper with me, but he does a great job at being mild at the Vets.

The only thrifting I did was a coffee mug. Just not really much worth buying there at the moment.

Sending blessings that August goes great for everyone. Thank you so much for stopping by to see what I've been scribbling. Link up is open. Thanks for sharing...if can visit and see what others are up to with their photography, crafting/thrifting and digiscrapping. 😊
