I’m in permanent facebook jail and can’t friend anyone.

She does, she’s blonde and blue eyed so they assume she’s a racist like they are.

Holy sh*t. It looks like some kind of alien plant. Check back in a couple of days to see if it has developed a pod.

Posting it on his page didn’t get all that much attention so far…

Holy cow. Greg Lief, any thoughts? That’s a wild looking flower.

That’s crazy! I doubt that it is native, but I will repost it in the Oregon Wildflowers group to see if anyone can ID it.

Greg just responded in the last few minutes.

More in the business part of downtown… blocks from the “riots.”

The rioters come out after midnight, they come out through the manhole covers.

passion flower from a passionflower vine

eta…oops, I just saw that Wabbit answered already.

I have that vine. There’s a butterfly called a Fritillary (one of the 14 types) that only reproduces on this vine. It sort of looks like a monarch, but it’s not.
