  1. Hi Keith, like the ragged robin. I've tried to naturalise it in my garden but it never persists for very long. The second grass down, with all the stamens to one side, is crested dog's tail Cynosaurus cristatus

  2. Just lovely again! Each one brings a feeling of lazy, hazy days of Summer...oh dear, I think that is part of a line from a song... :)

  4. Hello Milton!

    Nice plant pictures.
    It was new to me, that the English genus name of Geranium molle is Crane's-bill, in Hungary we call it Stork Nose (gólyaorr).

    All the best,
    Jani

  16. In sorting out the words, remember that things have a way of working out. Sort, photograph, write a little, get better and then book a flight over the pond for a visit.

  24. Dear Keith, I had to lood twice on your new selfe portrait! It seems that you have lost a lot of weight, have you? No cheddar cheese and all the other diet instructions from the "docs" are successful...... I admire your diet strains and your success. I should make this also once;-(( Your new pictures are wonderful everybody again! The fragility and elegance of the grass are impressive. I love how can easily move themselves in the wind. You have a senstive view of the little miracles of the nature. Pay attention well to yourselve and have a good time. Kind regards from Luzia.
