During Alberto

Tradescantia pallida, more commonly known as Purple Heart…  and since I always post the first Crinum lily of the season… lily with Bree in the background. In people years the old girl is 83.

You can’t kill crinums. I pulled the entire bed up after Irma… about 60 of them… and threw the ones I wanted to keep in another bed. Not planted. They lay there dormant, looking door-nail dead, until I planted them again this Spring. Miraculous.

Alberto has been dumping massive amounts of water on us, but guess what? It’s monsoon season anyway. For two weeks before Al got here we were inundated every day. Fortunately we live on a sandbar.
