  12. The purple flower looks like 'Scotch' thistle to me. A wild flower in the South. Some consider it a weed, but I've always liked it.

  17. Hi Denise. Just dropping in for a quick hello. Since the untimely arrival of the grandson, my time has not been my own. Between NICU visits and now home help . . . well, you probably know the feeling . . . time flies. I'm still blogging but not as much as the past. I've also migrated over to Wordpress, so you will b e finding me there now.
