Today is the day for posting flowers. I have two photographs for today, one of which will be very familiar to many, yet the second may not, because it is not often seen.
Lilac: Available in white, lilac or deep mauve/purple and various shades in between; a deciduous shrub often found in gardens and along urban side walks. The fragrance is heady and can be over powering but I wouldn’t want anything else. I love it.
The second is a mountain flower. I have no idea what it is called but I know it is a survivor. The flower head is less than 2mm wide and the height of the stem from ground to flower is about 4 inches. It would be easily missed. Anyone out there know what it is?
