Echium plantagineum, with honey bee

I started blogging in an effort to keep the old brain cells alive. I'm writing a fantasy series, I take more MOOCs than I can handle, and am trying to get my Nikon D3000 off auto. I live in Victoria, Australia, with my husband and our dog, Vika.

    1. Janet, I was thinking along those lines when I was away – so many wildflowers and shrubs that a pocket guide would be handy. I often use the Internet to look stuff up, though I have a huge book of plants which I’ve forgotten I had until you asked. I am familiar with the weed, Paterson’s Curse, though I’ve never seen it in so much detail before. I did look up it’s scientific name. 🙂 Thanks for dropping in.
