Normally we would all be sweating to get our tax returns (or extensions) filed in the US today – but hey, thanks to that little pandemic thing, we get another 32 days!
So instead, let’s look at what pops out of the ice plant growing along the chain link fence at the edge of our property.
Yes, they really, really are that bright!
They only bloom for a few days around this time of year.
The bees love them – surprisingly to me, the hummingbirds don’t seem to ever touch them.
I figured that before the invention of hummingbird feeders (and, you know, humans) the little buzzbombs would have feasted on something like this!
If so, then they’re doing it in an extremely stealthy fashion.

Gorgeous. It looks very like something we grow called mesembryanthemum, but bigger 🙂
Hummingbirds are designed for tubular flowers like honeysuckle. These flowers are designed for bees and butterflies 🙂
