This is called Sea Holly.   There are various kinds by this name.  The closest I came to identifying it was Eryngium planum 'Blue Glitter'.  You can see for yourself and click here to look at them.  I would be interested to see if you agree or if you have a different opinion, as I am always striving to get a correct ID.  Scroll down to look at the others.





I enjoyed the pretty pink Hibiscus.




The berry looking plant above is called Pokeweed, Phytolacca americana.


Another pretty hibiscus which is called Swamp Hibiscus, White Rose Mallow, Texas Star or just White Hibiscus. Its scientific name is Hibiscus coccineus 'Alba'.

Sedum (Autumn Joy)

BIRDS FROM MY ARCHIVES

I haven't taken any bird photos this week and am relying on my archives.  All were taken on road trips, sometimes short ones and sometimes a little longer.















For the following as they become available, with my thanks to all our hosts.
