Flowers from the Cottage Garden
Okay, so I'm driving to Washington DC to do something amazingly cool today which I will share with you after I'm all finished. I'm afraid that I'll lose my blogging mojo if I miss a day, so I'm leaving you with this bouquet from the cottage garden. The orange flowers are called pleurisy root, believed to be helpful for that condition if brewed in a tea. I think pleurisy is an old-fashioned name for pneumonia. The red rose in the back is a very old variety with the most wonderful smell. I believe these roses are original to 256 Constitution, which celebrated its 92 birthday yesterday. How do I know? The date is inscribed in the foundation.
