Color in the Wild

August 12, 2021

I think I forgot to post this photo — taken July 30. It was a lovely thing to see down at the creek (the mighty Putah).

The red in the front is a flower we planted in our front yard giant pot, thanks to neighbors Ray and Verena who walked past our house one day and said, “What your big new pot needs is a splash of color; come by one day and I’ll give you one of ours!” And I did! It’s called St Elmo’s Fire. Ray said it would bloom bright orange for most of the year.

I don’t know what that purple flower is. Its blooming season seems very short. There are some pretty delicate raspberry colored flowers in front; I don’t know what those are either.

Honestly, I gasped when I came upon this.
