Back in the 70s we grew coleus. They were quite popular as houseplants. Now I sometimes see them growing outside. The colors frequently astound me.
A year ago today was the last day I gave oboe lessons in person. I had three students here in my house. We had no masks yet, but all my students were used to going first to wash their hands: I’d been having them do that for years.
Here, have some Thursday images, which are from even further back in time:

I finally took a camera on my walk today. I barely did any camera work, but I was glad to see some lovely leaf color. Here’s one of the few shots I made.

Well no, I’m not from the south, but “y’all” just seemed to work well. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
I realize that, for some, this might be a Wednesday night camellia instead, but here in my corner of earth it’s afternoon so there you go. I absolutely love these kinds of camellias and this plant was amazing. (Perhaps you can see that there are actually three camellias in this image?!)
