We have spent the last two weeks mostly in doors. For the first time in 24 years we have both been ill at the same time with the most horrendous virus.
How heartening it was today to spot this plump red beauty with yellow tips. The first botttlebrush I have seen in Spring 2017!

you are really good with your camera.
Thank you, Larry. This one was taken with an iPhone.
So sorry you are ill. But beauty really does help, doesn’t it? So far, my husband and I are taking turns with our surgeries and trips to the ER and ICU. In between, we are thankful we no longer live in Texas!
Our family there are in a very nice rescue facility and though their car is totaled, most of their house is on stilts and did not get major water damage. They would be home by now, except there is a gas leak that has to be repaired before they can go back. Saying a few for you two to get well quickly and to get to enjoy all the beauty around you.
Thank you, Eileen, we are much better and back into the swing of work. I’m so sorry to hear about your family in Texas. Hoping they are able to start rebuilding their lives soon.
I don’t think I have ever seen a bottlebrush before.
My first thought was it is a triffid and you should get clean away from it.
You’re too funny! They are native to Australia. I have blooms in various sizes of red, white and yellow. The native birds like them.
I happen to be an INFJ, so we’re similar. In med school, I did a year of research and met a friend who was a brilliant INFP. He came up with the fundamental idea for the paper we published on platelet function. Other than him, the only INFP I know personally is my son who’s a brilliant and creative musician. It’s a trend. 😉
Apparently, we are in the minority. Although working in support services in a university I seem to be surrounded by INFPs and INFJs. 😎
You’re lucky. I’ve met only a few in my entire career as a pathologist. (I’m thankfully retired now.) I hope to meet more of us now that I’m a fiction writer.
I’m so regretful to listen about your sept in Texas. In MEd school day, I did a year of research and met a friend who was a magnificent INFP.
