I've got some native lupines and I think they've all gone to seed now, more likely from lack of water than from heat. We don't water that section of yard.

Mountain View, HI

Kelli - you got my attention.

Here is Wild plum that opened this morning.

Must add some weather - After flood advisories yesterday with rain and grey skies, this morning was beautiful. But the wind dropped, the clouds disappeared and we ended up with a HOT, humid day.

On Wednesday my wife and I visited our neighborhood volcano at dusk and go this pic.

They are calling for a high of 84F today. They are calling for patchy drizzle tonight and tomorrow but we'll see if this patch gets anything. They are a lot better forecasting high temperatures than forecasting precipitation.

Mountain View, HI

Clear blue sky, no wind, HUMID - sweating in the yard at 8am behind the lawn mower. Already climbing into the 70s. It will be uncomfortable today. Have to find yard work in the shade under the trees.

L.A. (Canoga Park), CA(Zone 10a)

This is for Microb. This is epiphyllum 'Roman Holiday'. That's what it was labeled as anyway. It looks a lot like 'Happy Holiday'. I couldn't get a head-on picture because something was in the way.

Mountain View, HI

Got up to 84f today and its only early May. What will it be like in August. Did get a little cloud but still no wind.

Nice bloom Kelli. I have to wait another day or two for new blooms. Hundreds of buds.

L.A. (Canoga Park), CA(Zone 10a)

Microb, how many epiphyllum plants do you have?


They are calling for a high of 75F today. They are no longer calling for drizzle. I'm not surprised.
