Local Color

The weather's finally warmed up--though days in the 80s sometimes still alternate with days in the 70s or even cooler. Nevertheless, the flowers are out. Here's a sample of what's blooming in our yard. Enjoy! Above: Apricot Mallow

An unidentified cactus given to us by our neighbor, Shirley, last year.

Left: Hedgehog Cactus. Right: Bladderpod or Paper Bag Bush, I can never remember which.
