Nah, just post what you think anyway. If you are right, we can all wait for your DH to return or someone else can do an interim post if he is a long way off returning. You could be wrong too!!!

hahaha--Bilby you are awesome but DH and I won't see each other for another week......I'm not doing that to y'all about what I think it is, the flower that I'm thinking about isn't quite that droopy in the pictures so I'm probably wrong.... but think "dairy" and that's my guess

I would go for the name "snow in summer" but I don't know the difference apart from one set of flowers droops & the others is upright.

I'll go ahead and give you all half of the answer. The thing that is different is the plant on the left is male and the one on the right is female.

As for being droopy, think of names of other plants that droop.

I will be balancing my checkbook (major job this time, as I couldn't find one of the zillion checkbook registers I knew we had for about a month) and paying bills, but I will check in now and then.

WooHoo! You got it pacanis! Known by several names: Poverty Weed, Roosevelt Weed, Sweet Willow (because of the droopy, weeping look), False Willow, New Deal Weed, and a few others. To add to the confusion, there is another plant, from another genus (Iva) that is also called Poverty Weed.

Give us a good one pacanis!

What's a good one? One that goes on page after page or one that's easily found or guessed?
Give me some time. I'll try to come up with something different.
I'm still trying to get the TX horticulture galleries out of my mind

ok, this should be fairly easy to track down, but I found the story about it interesting enough I thought I'd post it anyway. I found it looking for someone else's photo. Interesting stuff you find trying to narrow your searches down... this one can be posted

What is this gun called?

Well that certainly befuddled the experts for weeks, didn't it?
