    So pretty and of course the name makes me smile ear to ear.

  2. Lovely flower and I love the name which makes me smile too.

  3. You’ve absolutely hit your ID stride! There are a couple of ID books by your bed, and I hereby formally hand the job of ID in the Eurobodalla over to you. I love purple – at least it photographs. For some reason I always have trouble with blue. And purple and yellow is a winning combination.

    I’m excited! This time tomorrow you’ll be at my place.

      Indeed, just trying to work out the easiest way to get to the train with my case – avoiding rush hour hopefully!

      I think there are a lot of solanum varieties. There is one here that looks like lily leaves and had sprays of tiny purple and yellow flowers, the seeds are bright purple! I am sure it must be a solanum.

    We have these too! (or am I confusing it with my Portuguese life? Might be 🙂 )
