The sun shining on my African violet, while humming My Girl by the Temptations. The hairs help regulate temperatures and ward off unwanted critters.

We had a very mild winter last year, so imagine my surprise discovering that my very long legged dog was afraid of the foot of snow that fell last night.

Wet Indigo © Lynn Wiles 2020
My Baptisia (false indigo) leaves after the rain. The blue flowers are now long gone, but it is interesting how the leaves turn a bluish gray.

Another fern, drops of water on a stem. We were in severe drought earlier this year, but we are making up for it now.

My Trees Exhalation © Lynn Wiles 2020

Euphorbia Up Close © Lynn Wiles 2020
I don’t like living in an urban heat island in the summer, but it is nice this time of year when we experience frost later than the outlying areas and the garden is still in bloom. Meanwhile, I had to go through seven revisions with the new and old wordpress editors to get this to look consistent with the other posts on this site. sigh.
