daylia, daylia,

my daughter and I spelled her name in the leaves of weeds, twigs, sea-shells and also the blossoms of a golden rain tree, as a kind of abstract portrait of her which I mounted by museum methods in a shadowbox frame.

If we can find out the name of the Eastern Virginia Bower, also called the Devil's Darning Needles, then surely you with your superior powers, higher wisdom, and better looks, can find those sites where you enter your locale and they provide endless images of plants you're apt to see there. It may take searching, scrolling, and difficult rejections of almost-matches, but it will be worth it.

   Incidentally it's also fun and poetic to have small children find and select particular rocks to represent people they know. Rock poetry. It's unexpectedly powerful stuff.
