I was taking the recycling bin out to the back yard today and was surprised to see this one big plant covered in these bright, fuscia flowers.
We’ve been in this house for four years, but this is the first time I remember ever seeing this plant flowering.
The flowers all have this tiny little five-part center, which is amazing to look at up close.
I’m thinking if I had seen this previously I would have remembered. But maybe not. Cue that old joke about the advantage to “senioritis” being that you could hide Easter eggs and then find them yourself the next day!
Either way, they were a joy today, and probably tomorrow and the next few days as well. I’ll take it!
Never look a gift pistil in the mouth!
