(Mystery) Sea Lavender, Göteborg, May 7th, 2003
On Sunday May 11th I pinched this little branch off the Sea Lavender, expecting lawnmowing to start in the coming work week. Yes. On Tuesday the contractor spent a full day mowing our block with the big mower - but for the part of the Limonium the cobblestone strategy worked. This round was not for neatness around the edges. It's still there.
The patient Limonium
has survived its second winter as an S-weed.
Moreover, there's a shoot
that hopes to bear flowers...
though with lawn mower season approaching
that is a brittle hope, indeed.
My sorry camera apologizes
for the blurry rendering
of what looks like a confirmation
of the tentatively assigned genus
(I'm grateful to Erik Ljungstrand for looking at it in situ)
- but still does not yield an identification
down to the species.
And yes: they've sold us (the star houses) again.
For an old S-weed like me, this is a bit unsettling
though nothing much will probably change in practice.
In -98 from Poseidon (of reliable Göteborg housing tradition)
to GE Capital as an investment among multinational investments
though the practical management was delegated to Utsikten
which has now gone to Belgium... Our new owner and host is NewSec
- Swedish company with a name in English (??) well, it's not the first.
