It's in the name

I love these flowers and at this time of year they are everywhere. They can be seen in the most hostile settings, think motorways and empty tracts of land. When we walk anywhere I bring a few home, they last for ages in water and recently I planted some that had come away with their roots. I asked a friend what they are called and she said 'moonpennies'. What a lovely name. It comes from the fact that in moonlight they shine like bright pennies.
I decided to name my blog after them. Miss Lizzy was always interim. Only a few people call me Lizzy now, it harks back a long way. Anyway, this blog is about things I love and this name and these flowers suit the blog.
I hope you agree.
