Maybe somebody can help identify this flower. I took this picture on the Key West, Florida garden tour. It was growing on a fence and looked like a vigorous vine. The color was superb and it had some nice details on close inspection. If nobody knows it I will post it over on the UBC Plant Forums, as I haven’t seen one that stumped them yet.
I am back from Santa Fe and will again, hopefully, be updating this site on a regular basis. The celebration of my Mother’s life was both a great party and a bittersweet sad affair. We had a circle of sharing where everyone spoke of memories and impressions and right in the middle of it a flower delivery came. It was the most beautiful white Roses and purple Iris. While it was probably just good timing, to me it symbolized her joining us.
Santa Fe is a place I have visited many times. Not only did my Mother live there but my sister and her husband own the Hypnotherapy Academy. I had never been there this time of the year, however. I am always amazed at the beautiful gardens that people make in such a desert place. There were a lot of flowering trees that I had never noticed, particularly Crabapple, Ornamental Pear and Thundercloud Plum.
