Silvery grey and gold

Neckpiece by Brooke Battles (Via Velvet da Vinci).

Brooke's neckpiece made me think of my Senecio Cineraria, also known as Silver Ragwort. Books and TV gardeners often describe it as a plant that is grown for the folliage and that you should chop of the flowers, but I never do, the bees love them and I think they look lovely at every stage. My main plant has all these stages happening on it just now so there's lots to see.

Thanks for visiting my blog. It looks to me like we have many common interests, so I will be back. Your ragwort is lovely in all its stages. I do the same with lambs' ears: leave them for the bees, but find myself appreciating them more than expected.
I would love to see some pix of that mobile home redo.

What a beautiful necklace and gorgeous images of the ragwort. Enjoyed this post very much!

your photos are stunning and I can see the connecting between jeweller's and nature's artwork.
How could one ever consider chopping the blossoms.
(Next will be that we'll chop off some heads, because the legs are so beautiful, hehee)

Took me a while to recognize, that you're back which is GREAT!!!
