From Today’s Walk

I took a nice 5+ mile walk today. I know, with work coming up soon, I won’t have as much time, so I’m getting them in while I can. The day was overcast, but no rain at all is forecast, which is a great disappointment as well as a worry. But so it goes. You can bet I’m praying for rain!

Meanwhile, I do see flowers … some of the magnolias are blooming now, as are Narcissus. The Daphne are the most fragrant flowers of all at this point, and they are wonderful. And of course the Zantedeschia aethiopica are blooming as you can see below. I think the bee was quite happy!

Happy Monday

As I wait for the temperature outside to warm up a wee bit (yes, I’m wimpy: it IS, after all, over 40°!) I thought I’d wish you all a happy Monday. I realize that, for many, it’s a back to work day, but I hope it can still be happy. Maybe some of you are even happier getting back to work …? I wonder.

I think I’ve identified this correctly as Coleonema, and it might be Coleonema pulchellum , also known as “Pink Breath of Heaven”.
