"Ma in Her Kerchief" Lives in Balsam, North Carolina

By
Real Estate Broker Owner with MoonDancer Realty, Dillsboro,NC NC# 218097
 
This flower took over a month to shed its kerchief here in Balsam, NC.  There's only one plant on the property like this and it's been here for more than 28 years.  There's a stalk that's probably 3 feet tall and then this bud which explodes into the shape you see here.  Maybe one of you in the Rain with the extra sensory flower powers of identification can help identify it.  Until then, I'm calling it "Ma in Her Kerchief".

Than, it is the top of a concrete bird bath leaning up against a wall.

Thanks Patty, since it took so long to unfold it was pretty easy to just check in on it every couple of days.

Gayle,  you are the very first person to notice the new background...I'm not surprised because you notice all things.  It's a photo I took from the deck of our friend Emory's place in Sylva Vista.  I couldn't bear to lose the Tree Dudes though so they are now in the signature section.  Loved your post today with the deer pictures.

Hi Mona,

I also love your new blue sky background with the big tree and hills. I noticed yesterday you had all your little photos in boxes at the bottom. They are so interesting and I adore their faces! They give nature some character.

Hi Mona,

I have several "Lily of the Nile plant aka Agapanthus" and it has a flower that looks just like this. Not sure but looking similar to mine. There is a white one called White Heaven as the purple-blue color is more popular and everywhere in our area. I guess because they are so hearty.

Good Morning Roger, just so we have a clear understanding of our relationship! lol

Hi Kristin, Thanks.  I like this new look too.  The photo was taken at a really nice party, there was champagne.  I look at this scenery and the champagne memory reminds me to celebrate the views here. I'll have to google Lily of the Nile and see what comes up.
