This isn’t just an example of a Friday flower, it’s a fabulously fantastical Friday flower from France.  🙂  I think my language nerd self is taking over: yesterday puns, today alliteration.  (There’s even an “The-Artist-Formerly-Known-As” reference.  What’s that all about??) Who knows what tomorrow might bring other than the weekend?  Whatever it brings to you, I hope it’s wonder-filled!

If anyone knows what this flower is, please let me know in your comment.  Thanks!

People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us.

    Love this Janet (image and alliteration). My green-fingered neighbour who’s visiting thinks the flower is a Blazingstar. Happy Weekend to you.

    • And thanks to your neighbor, Su. I looked it up and it certainly appears that’s what it is. Glad you enjoyed the photo and wordplay.

        I’ll tell her! And I always enjoy the wordplay. The boy-child is good at puns and language jokes too, and I so admire that. It’s not a talent I have. 🙂

  2. I love the smell too.

    Fascinating capture, Janet. Purple Rain reminds me of Prince who was a wonderful artist. Music has a high priority in my life 🙂

  4. I think I could really like your version of purple rain. 🙂

  5. It looks thistle y. is it teasel?Anyway it’s a teaser!

  6. Funny punny post! Perhaps you are under the influence of the full moon!

  7. Love the purple drenched with droplets 🙂 No idea what flower it is, though it looks like you’ve got it figured out now. I don’t think I’ve seen a blazing star in the wild before.

    Blazing Star is a native prairie wild flower. Like all pretty flowers it is now bred by the nursery industry!! Should be pretty hardy in your part of the country.

    Why did I like it so much? It has got basically an alien form. Maybe too much Doctor Who….

  20. I am in love with that color…
