#246 — Lamb's Tail

Fuschia Tuft

Lamb’s Tail, taken at the Anacortes Ferry Terminal, Anacortes, WA.

The delicate, feather like fronds of this beauty caught my eye.  I snapped the photograph not knowing what it was, but luckily I live with a card carrying botanist and — though he didn’t know what it was, either — he knew where to go to discover it’s name.  This is Ptilotus Exaltatus Joey.  He is a native Australian, loves hot, dry Summers and stays fresh and perky for up to three months when picked and kept in a vase.  I know Joey is a bit flashy for a fella, but he’s definitely the fella for me!

    Ack! Wouldn’t you know, I forgot to touch it! I just figured it had to be as fluffy as it looked!
