In the meantime, enjoy this picture of a flower that I took back when it was warm. Although this plant has a proper name I call it the “semaphore flower” because it has the coolest system of blossoming first a red flower and then a yellow one and then a pink one, each one lasting but a day and then it seems to rotate them just like a traffic light.
I respect this plant because I didn’t put it in that pot on purpose – it just jumped on in from airborne seeds and started thriving. At first I thought it was rosemary but then it I found out that it wasn’t so it won’t be going in any food but it’s a very nice plant to look at.
My cat Noodles is visible in the background, also enjoying that last week of sun and heat. As always, click on the photo for the largest size.
