Soft Love, With Hidden Spiky Bits!

I like to play. I find joy in small things and moments where the edge between conscious looking and subconscious seeing becomes soft enough for me to be there for a moment.

    This is lovely adore really flufly leaves. Do they produce spikes of flowers of little purple flower heads.I have something similiar but called lambs ears may be paler in colour.

  • This is a small leaf from a very young plant – the mature specimen is 7 foot tall! I put an image of the trunk of a more mature plant under the description here! The leaves of the mature plant are quite large – the size of a small plate. This a warm climate Kalanchoe – probably grown in hot houses in your neck of the woods! I just make sure mine are safe from frost. I know lambs ears – love them, they are so soft! They don’t love our summers here….
