Balmy days and cool crisp nights

Now that I have posted about the nip in the air….it has of course turned into an Indian Summer….the past few days have been *bliss* here with balmy hot windless days and cool crisp mornings and evenings. Ericas are in flower all over the mountainside and planning for propagating Spring flowering plants is underway.

Pelargonium reniforme. Its second name means “kidney-shaped” in Latin which is what the leaves are shaped like. Its bitter-tasting root has many medicinal properties.

Agapanthus seed head. We get excited about seed heads. Generally.
