Randomness again today.
Who wants to see weird, creepy, tentacles? I never planted my big voodoo lilies (Amorphophallus konjac), as they seemed to flower just fine sitting bare in a pot. Now though, it seems like they want to grow some foliage!
I wouldn't have seen this if I had been on the ball and planted these at a reasonable time. Strange and beautiful, no?
The native Passiflora is just starting to open:
Bees make it better!
These blooms are just perfect for the larger bees:
Love how the anthers are bent down so they contact the bee's fuzzy back. Just perfect!
My small pots of 'Gollum' jade plant are really starting to fill in:
I love the texture!
I haven't taken butterfly photos for a few years...
...but these of a female Eastern Tiger Swallowtail turned out surprisingly good using just my phone camera.
Ending with a plant that I look at every day:
My Pachypodium lamerei. I am keeping a close watch on the flower buds as they form. Soon I think they will start opening, but since this is the first time I'm just guessing. Exciting!
Have a great weekend!
