We're back from the ranch! This trip was particularly exciting since we moved cattle across Texas. It was a major event that I'll share when I have more time, but Jesus loves us, that's all I know! Otherwise, we'd have a lot of dead people and dead cows scattered all over the freeway. Anyway, I'll save that for later. For now, I just want to say this:

      No matter how how bad things seem, when examined quite closely, one can see how little blessings line up. It's all a matter of your perspective.

Is the purple flower Salvation Jane [Patterson's curse]? Official name Echium plantagineum or Purple Viper's Bugloss.

I'm not sure. I haven't had a chance to look it up on the internet yet.

The flower is called a "gay feather." I thought it was but I wanted to check on the internet to be sure I wasn't mistaken.

I searched Google images: flower "liatris" "gay feather" and found lots of photos. When I lived in the Atlantic provinces, my mother planted them in her garden. Very pretty. Please take some closer shots of your flowers when you have "time".

Can animals eat yr purple flower? Says it's a great garden plant. Ours is a thistle type of thing but noxious weed till times of drought. Hence 2 names. [curse or salvation] Supposed to be a good bee attraction

I don't know about cattle, but I'm sure goats would eat it.
