Impossible to tell what color this hibiscus will be from the bud. What would you guess?

Thunbergia, FOTD Dec. 1, 2020

This little Thunbergia vine is not growing out of the pot but rather into it from below. It has wandered all over my front and back gardens, then dies back and has to be untangled from the rest of the plants. It is fun to see where it is going to wander off to next. It somehow got from the front yard to the back without my help and with no clear pathway, as the house is in-between and paved with a stone terrace all the way around it.. One of nature’s grand mysteries. This fast-growing little plant is also called clockvine or black-eyed-susan.

Sun Rose: FOTD, Nov 23. 2020

Yolanda tells me that the name for this little succulent flower in Mexico is “pistãnas de mi suegra” Which means “the eyelashes of my mother-in-law!”  Ha. Much more colorful than “sun rose.”  This bee doesn’t care what we call them, however.

State of the Poinsettias: FOTD Nov 22, 2020

As you can see by enlarging the photos avove, the poinsettias in the planter next to my bedroom have increased in size and hue since I first showed them a week or so ago. They are never going to turn red but will get more of a peach coloration in the next few weeks.
