Fresh Fall Fragrance
Wouldn't it be neat if I could bottle up the aroma of our vanilla-scented lilac-colored trumpet vine, which is still blooming and full of fragrance, now in near-November, and send it to you on my blog? I'll be interested when that technology arrives. This blossom smells like Easter candy, those pastel-coated almonds with vanilla extract...doesn't exactly seem like a fall flower.
I believe the above is known as a purple potato bush. Can anyone identify the following plant for me?
I have the feeling I'm giving away the secret of my favorite color.

I think that unidentified plant is Mexican Lavendar, at least that's what I was told.

Thanks, Sami - Mexican Heather sounds like a nice name for it :-) And looks just like it, at http://aggie-horticulture.tamu.edu/ornamentals/coastalplants/cuphea.html. It's hard to look up by a photo, but with that name provided by you, it was easy!
