Prolific in our back yard and, though called "blue mistflower," it's a pretty deep pink color.

Ground Cover

Crown vetch, in an archival photo that was previously overlooked. Nice when such images appear, as if seen from some distance--the distance of time. Was I really there? I must have been. Isn't photography wonderful.

Many Uses

19 Jun 2021 2 1 38
My lawn mower, all-manual, was squeaking, and so I looked for a lubricant and found this slightly rusty can of "household oil." Although it did not list lawn mowers among the possible uses, I noticed that the list included typewriters. The can has been around a while! I tried it on the mower, applied it liberally in many places. It worked and no doubt would have worked on my typewriter if I still had it. Some days I do miss it.
