Haemanthus albiflos flowers

For the last few days our deck has been decked out (the English language is such fun isn't it?) with some of our favorite flowers...but then we occasionally been accused of having weird tastes. Also known as the "Elephant's Tongue" or "Shaving Brush" plant from South Africa, this is an easy to grow succulent bulb which prefers moderate temperatures but bright light...and a weird taste for odd flowers!

Sometime tomorrow we'll be taking a drive to PeDee, Oregon to visit a friend. Where's PeDee and how did it get its name? People are often still asking that question even after driving through it..."Did we miss it?" (By the way, it's pronounced PeeDee, and it's located in King's Valley. I'm sure that helped a lot!)

I don't know how it got its name and I'm not going to speculate. Anyone out there know?
