There’s a lot happening in these early days of August, and here are some photos to prove it.

Plant Update: Bleeding Heart Vine:

This is a plant that my grandfather rooted for me years ago, from a plant that I had given him for Christmas. I bring it to work each year, and in the summer, it stays outside. A bloom at last!

    • Hi Mindy, and thanks for the comments. Thanks to my father’s advice, I started taking photos earlier or later in the day, so the sun did not wash out the colors. I was shocked myself at how vivid the colors are in the photos. I guess Dad knows of what he speaks. Happy that you stopped by!
