Flowers

Not too long ago I posted a picture of the lambs ear in my front yard. I think there were a couple of you who said you had never seen the flowers it gets and I had promised to take pictures when these flowered.
From further back you can see how it gets tall stalks that flower on the top

They haven't fully opened yet but you can see the little purple flowers in this closer shot.

Oh and I just noticed there is a spider web on this one.

  1. These are really pretty plants/flowers! (Are things going 'good enough"? And is it time to just hunker down and sleep for 24 hours?) ♥️

    1. Well I don't know if things are going good enough but I'm moving in the right direction. I don't know about sleeping 24 hours. I just feel like I want to move and live and breathe. Does that sound odd?

    2. No, just another example of how people cope differently. I would be exhausted and want to just be alone and hide. I cope by retreating, you by being out there and active. It’s all good.

  3. I just love your photos. It's been a long time since I've had this plant in my garden. It does not like they heavy/wet clay here in GA! Seems to me the plant has a grape scent. God bless you today, Ann. xo

  4. There are just some plants that don't flower well. Hostas are like that to me too....I always cut the blossoms off. But I always like to touch lambs ears. So soft!

    1. I never had these until Wade and I got married. These came from the house he lived in before we got married. I dug some up and planted them around this tree

    1. I didn't realize there were more varieties of this plant.
      Yesterday did go smooth and yes, I believe there were plenty of gentle thoughts to go around

  12. Hi Ann, I have these in my little garden and I've never seen mine grow tall like that, they always just stay hunkered down along the dirt, and I have never seen them bloom, unless I missed it! I'll have to take a better look this year, but I do love the softness of the leaves. Hope you are doing OK.

  15. Dear Ann, I have had some setbacks lately (minor) and I am so sorry I have missed writing before now. For some strange reason, your post was the only one I checked on today. I am so sorry for your loss,and I am thinking of you. I appreciate your posts so much and that you look for beauty everywhere, even in sad times. Love, Peggy
