Large purple flower plant in Old Town San Diego

Large purple flower plant in Old Town San Diego.

I’ve tried to search for the proper name of this plant for several days now, but I guess my id process of googling for “purple plant” has resulted in zero hits with similar pictures. This particular bush/plant is located in Old Town San Diego, but I’m sure there are others in the area.

Not sure if you can tell from the image, but it’s at least 9 ft tall if not more. The bees and bumble bees were having a feast on the purple flowers.

If anyone knows the proper name of this plant/flower, please share it below with a comment, I would really appreciate it!

Colorful ceramic animals and skull at Casa de Wrightington in Old Town San Diego.

While at the Casa de Wrightington in Old Town San Diego, I came across this colorful display of ceramic animals. The skull simply enhanced the ensemble so I made sure to include it.

This display was just outside of the Wrightington building and from what I remember, this area is where they normally have a Day of the Dead display, which was to the left of this table.

Old Town San Diego is very well maintained and looks just as it did from 1820’s to early 1900’s, so it’s perfect for taking unique photos. If you recall, last year I posted a photo of the Mason Street School, a place I always visit when I’m in that area.

After visiting the Mason Street School House and the rest of the sites at Old Town, while waiting to be seated for dinner, we were treated to a fun traditional Mexican dance show.
