This name is so lovely that I hope I have the ID right! And the flower is so gorgeous, it well deserves a sweet name to reflect its character. This is on a bush in a bed planted next to the school near us, nowhere near a meadow, so this might not be right after all, but we don’t care, do we? (See the disclaimer at the end of this paragraph.) I particularly love how the tiny buds are little little stars in a constellation near the main burst of blossoms. Have a lovely Monday and week ahead, my friends. A Flower a Day #324  (NB while I make every effort to identify the flowers posted, I make no guarantee that the name is correct.

  1. You have discovered a truly awesome plant – an incredible edible, a medicinal herb and a strewing herb. Yes, that’s right, a plant one of whose many usages was to be strewn on the floor because walking on it emitted such a pleasant aroma (remember your thyme). The whole plant is aromatic, not just these adorable fuzzy clusters of red peepers daring you to come closer, to discover what it has to offer. Don’t be deceived by its innocent demeanor. It holds many wonders. Thank you, Ellie, for making it a wonder-full Monday.

    1. And that information right there is truly awesome in its own right! Thank you so much for the herb lesson today, Janet. There is so much to learn! I’m glad that I featured this today and next time I pass it, I will give the whole thing a good sniffing.

  2. Good morning Ellie that is a beautiful flower. The design that the little tentacles reminds me of something underwater. But yet so delicate and fluffy. Thanks again for sharing hope you have a great day.

    1. It’s so true that on close inspection they might resemble tiny sea creatures, Linda. I hadn’t seen it until you mentioned it. Thanks!
