So far….7 out of the last 8 days have been….hmmm…well…let’s say …gray….or grey if you prefer.
They are flowers which my wife planted and she DOESN’T know the proper name of them
I believe they are ‘unofficially’ called Chinese Lantern plants but somehow that sounds neither Latin nor very scientific.
It does, however describe them to a tea…..sorry…had to slip in a Chinese reference if I could.
These last well into the fall weather and I think they will actually freeze and keep their shape until spring….theoretically as these will be long blown down by my tractor/snowblower combo.
Still and all they are definitely a standout flower in my mind.
