Flower Buds & Silk Floss

Sep 28, 2015

Muru-the-catArtist Ulla Anobile is a creator and an observer. She observes as she walks her neighborhood and she’s kindly allowed us to share more of her photos…

Photo, right: “Muru the Cat lounges on my patio railing on a very hot August day. Taken 8/13 2015.

A friend of Ulla’s comments on this flower (below), Chorisia speciosa

‘Silk Floss tree. From Brazil. The thick weird green trunks are covered with thorns. And the seed pods that look like mangoes split open when ripe and throw out volumes of white fluffy “silk”.’

Ulla: “I thought this pale white cluster of bougainvillea leaves was so ethereal and pretty”…

We cannot not include what we consider a Muru still life—cactus, drinking water, and 3 kitty treats…
