I always take pictures of the first crinum lily of the season.

And here’s the neighbor’s hibiscus:

Yes, their house really is that shade of green. If they like it, I don’t care.

Anymore.

Bougainvillea Round XVI

Do you ever fertilize your plants and the next day go out thinking they’ll be bursting with robust health?

Yeah, me either.

I’ve never counted how many posts include bougainvillea, but it could be that many.

I wouldn’t necessarily take a mundane photo of my neighbor’s hibiscus, but I saw the glow on the fence and couldn’t resist. This flower’s color is so radiant, even the fence can’t resist absorbing some of its beauty.

Not the correct explanation, but it’s the one I like.

 

Luna

I captured (and subsequently released) a Luna moth caterpillar. Couldn’t help myself; it was huge. Easily the largest I’ve ever seen. And so close to his pupal stage.

He was the length of the mason jar.

His legs were nightmarish. Seriously. They have ‘faux legs’ that look harmless and then the things you see when he’s turned over, which grab leaves and… elongate.

Tell me that won’t give you bad dreams.

I got either his head or tail in focus, but never both. So, I opted for head… but really it’s just a so-so shot of a rusting ex-pen.
