During a lunch-time walk this week, I came across a really WILD looking wildflower:
I'm no botanist, I had no clue what it was. But, hey, this is the 21st centrury, we have Google! So I did an image search on "wildflower crazy purple". And scrolling through the results I found: Purple Passion Flower. Also known as Maypop or Ocoee. And it is the "State Flower" of Tennessee.
So I learned something today....
Meanwhile, the title is from the Graham Parker song, from the album "Squeezing Out Sparks".
