  1. It seems like August was just hot and dry, and hotter and drier... and then I see your flowers and remember that it was also cooler afternoons and skies starting to change, and of course Irene and her earthquake. Funny for flowers change one's perspective.

  2. Pretty! Your blue flowers look like Lobelia siphilitica.

  3. Yes, they change mine,too, webb.

    Janet - thank you! Poor plant, terrible name. I associate lobelias so much with Cape Town that it's nice to see them here.

  4. I fell in love with the Asclepias curassavica and ordered three seed packets online. Thanks for showing it to us.
