First off let me begin by saying that I am very excited to announce that the oranges are turning. It is like all of the sudden the oranges and the lemons just burst into color.
The Cape Honeysuckle is bursting with color as well. These are such a vibrant orange and are like little neon lights beaming with color.
When I was out and about today, I came across a few little guys I thought I would share with you. Here is a little caterpillar which was on the Milk Weed, no shock there. I imagine he will soon make a cocoon and turn into a butterfly, of which kind I do not know. I barely have my birds down, have not mastered the caterpillars yet....
The Moy Grande Hibiscus are so huge I just love them. The flowers are big saucers of color.
I am anticipating the opening of the Donkey Ear Kalanchoe. I have this guy planted right by the door in a large pot and he seems to enjoy the spot. Every day it is opening more and more, I can't wait till he really "does his thing"!
This little guy was watching me it seemed all day. I took his picture and then he flew off. I guess he was waiting to be noticed.
Another big guy that was checking things out was the hawk. We have a few in the field next to us and they tend to like this pole, it makes a great perch for them.
Like I said, a little of this and a little of that... The cold front is gone but now there is a pretty decent chance of rain. We shall see.
