We are in the midst of a blizzard in Maryland and expect to be at home for the next several days. I thought you might enjoy this photograph of a Shrimp Plant, Justicia brandegeana at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA. I posted this photograph in a number of Facebook groups earlier today and have received many positive comments.

Take care if you live in the path of the winter storm. Have an outstanding weekend.

Roy- just stopped in to wish you and Dolores a safe and warm weekend. I remember the shrimp plants that were in my grandmother's yard.

Roy, it makes me wonder how the plant got its name.  Stay warm and safe!

These look gorgeous, Roy.  I have never hear or seen a shrimp plant before.

It is always good to hear from you. The blizzard is still in full force in our area and the snow is very deep.

What a lovely but unusual looking plant that is!  I sometimes wonder about those that come up with the Latin names given to plant life.

Roy, thinking of you and Delores and all the energy and commotion in 'your part of town (of the US) :) Flowers lend nicely to a special serenity and peace.

It is sometimes a good practice to revisit old blogs and reblogs. We might even find some good ideas for current posts.
