White Bird of Paradise: Flower of the Day, Apr 20, 2018


The white bird of paradise plant is often mistaken for a banana tree.  It is immense and the flowers so high up that they may be overlooked.

Zeroing in: Hibiscus, Flower of the Day, Apr 18, 2018

IMG_9486 copyIMG_9486My backyard had become a bit of a jungle.  The men came and trimmed the palms and cut the pistachio tree in the background of this photo way back.  Sort of sad right now, but really opened up the view of the lake. In this photo taken a couple of weeks ago, the tree furnishes a lush backdrop to the profiles of these twin hibiscuses.

Dearly Departed: Flower of the Day, Apr 16, 2018


This is a bloom on my favorite giant copa de oro vine that blew over in its huge pot and died a week or so ago. Much missed.
