Notice the lavender in my hair. It smelled lovely. I kept it to pack with my dirty clothes to keep them from fouling the rest of my luggage....and remember the calming effect lavendar has (function & behavior post)
A hibiscus, I think
A morning glory variety.
Another cultivated daisy variety along a sidewalk.
Oh, the dredded sticker bush with it's prickly waxy leaves. As a kid I hated having to confront this bush when a ball or toy got away.
A berry from a bush.
Common shrub plant I saw along many walks and in front of people's front doors. The leaves were mottled with a yellow color. If you know the name, or a related plant, let me know.
Little Goose Flower and the broad leaf grass that it comes from. This flower is found on lawns ans seems as common as our clover flowers - which they also have in France (no pictures) and is more fragant than I remeber our clover flowers to be.
