This is the first time the Anthurium plant produced large flowers.
The plant is probably 6-7 years old and normally the pollen laden
flowers are tiny. Right now I'm suffering from allergies to
everything in the air! But before I snipped off the gorgeous flowers
I photographed them.
The flowers always remind me of of Elephants . . . .
Layered/blended photo of a window in Amalfi, Italy,
I was pretty sure this was taken in Orvieto. So much
for memory! But then after all, it
was six years ago.
1974. We were living in Newhall, CA at the time and the summer temps
were hot. I can't imagine being cold enough in San Juan Bautista to have
needed heavy jackets and hats! We eventually lived about 45 minutes from
the San Juan Bautista mission and rarely needed more than a light weight
jacket when we visited the area.
This is image is from scanned negatives that are in bad shape.
Much improved with a watercolor effect.
