In the meadow you sometimes get surprised. Things does not look as you expect them to do. The first image, I think, looks sad. It was a dry part of the meadow. The other one  seemed to thrive as it just recieved a short shower. And then the sun came out a little while.

This plant came from a floral shot I bought 3 years ago. Now, finally, it started to bloom. But to my surprise it is not the one I bought. They sent me another one. Well, I can´t say I´m sorry, this one is gorgeous too, And so large, 35mm in dia, and it has a skirt. :) There is only three flowers, not a lot as the others I have. But that might be just a slow beginning.
Hoya praetori... or?? It was the name I was given. But the one I wanted should be orange/yellow. And much smaller.

I spent my day at Stendörren Natural reserve. A great place for taking a wim in the Baltic Sea. Just as we was packing our gear to go home this beauty came into sight. No chance you are getting home as long as she was visible.

 More about Sunbeam Swedish only, sorry.
A GOOGLE translation from a part of the history below:
....................

research sunbeams history

The English cutter Sunbeam was built in 1905 in the East of England, specifically in Lowestoft.
The ship was built as a sailing trawlers to fish in the North Sea in summer and winter. During the late 1800s and early 1900s built over 2000 so-called "smacks" or sailing trawlers in England. The name Kutter comes to the type of vessel early had a CUTTER ie was enmastade, but later became vessels ketchriggade. The typical hull form with a straight stem, long keel, tail hedge and quite deep (about 3m) is characteristic of an English cutter. The vessels are built in 5 inch frames of oak with a plating on 2.5 to 3 inch shell and an interior decoration of 2-2.5 inch oak. The deck of pine is put on the deck beams of ek.Uttrycket "Two skips built in one" is proof that they considered this to be a strong hull.

Lol, I was at the beach today for tanning and a swim. This is my footprint already spoiled a little by the water. And when I looked at it there are two winged ones. A fly at the toe and a bee at the heel.
