Vined Fortune. FOTD, June 28, 2020

This vine has been growing on the outside of my wall for nineteen years and I still don’t know what it is. On a whim, I snapped this photo not noticing what a wonderful background the color of the car parked across the street made for the little surreal still life the flowering vine formed. It’s the first good shot I’ve had of this flower in all those years.

This arete plant is holding on. It has been blooming for more than a month. Love it. You can increase the size of the photos by clicking on them.

White Fuchsia, FOTD May 1, 2020

A few days ago I published a photo of an all-white Fuchsia that Yolanda calls an earring (Arete) plant. At the time, many of us said we’d never seen an all-white fuchsia. Yesterday I went out to see it again and this is what I saw. That central white ball has turned red and I predict the “earring” will be the same.

Royal Poinciana Tree Abloom FOTD, Apr 25, 2020

I can’t seem to get a photo that does this Royal Poinciana tree in the front yard of my house justice. The sun was too bright this morning. I’ll try again this afternoon.

It’s only negative feature is that it is messy when the petals begin to fall. Here they are, above and below. Click on photos to enlarge.

Arete (Fuchsia?) Flower: FOTD, Apr 24, 2020

Yolanda calls this flower an arete..or earring flower, so if she is correct, it is a white fuchsia, which I’d never seen before Pasiano brought me this plant. We’ll see what happens when that little round ball opens up. She’s probably right .
