And, flowers, both common and weird, on St. George Island
Tis the season of butterflies and fall flowers on St. George Island. I'm also growing a few strange plants given to me by friends. Let me know what you think.
Top: This is called (what else?) a starfish plant, given to me by my good friend Mary Agnes. I have never seen such a bloom.
Middle: This is the "bud" or whatever you call such a monster, just before the bloom opens on the starfish plant.
Bottom: This is on the island, one of our many gulf frittilaries that are visiting right now. And, YES, I took that picture!! OK, well, the camera did most of the work.
