Everlasting

I panicked a little on this weeks ABC Wednesday letter -- E! What in the world would I post for E? Then I remembered the meadow of Pearly Everlasting that I was wandering through two weekends ago and thought it would be perfect. The flowers and stems can be dried and used in decorations. I just think it is simple and pretty alone.

  4. I have never heard of this flower before. What a perfect choice for E. I like that they can be dried and used later.

  6. Wow! white everlasting flowers. My first to see them. I always see the brown-orange ones! Loved that word "everlasting" for letter E.

    Happy mid-week! Blessings!

  13. Very beautiful blog. I've been fortunate to have visited Oregon two years in a row for almost three weeks each. Of course I fell in love with it. We rented for a week right on the ocean (amazing) but also spent happy days in the Mosier area and to the east in the desert. You have SO MUCH there!

  28. wow...this is my first time to see white Everlasting...we have here but only yellow..

  29. Do these grow wild near you? That's such a surprise to me! We can grow statice and another one whose name I don't know but which looks rather like your pearly white ones. We just call them 'everlasting flowers' ...

    I always thought they were delicate, difficult to grow, garden plants, but of course, they must grow wild somewhere!! Silly me.

    Lovely picture, and now I'm imagining the rustling sound they must make when you walk through a meadow of them.
