My life is anything but normal. Then who's is. To get through this life I try to see the funny side of things. This is not a political commentary. My cardiologist says I need to avoid stress. Beside dealing with the government has taught me to curse like a sailor, and I'm trying to clean up my act. Oh if your trying to practice for the spelling bee, don't count on my help, I'm a horrible speller. THANK GOD for spell check. Now, if I would remember to use it.
O is for "Obedient plant" Physostegia digitalis. This flowering plant get its name from the fact that when you move the flower to the side it will stay in that position. (I could think of some people and dogs I wish this worked on.)
This plant grows 3 to 5 feet high. This showy flower is found in the open, often wet area of East Texas. It has also been cultivated for gardens and with these beauties I can see why. As I am sure you already guessed the butterflies and hummingbirds like these flowers as well. The blooms show up from June through August.
