One of my blog friends, Jane at smallbutcharming, suggested last week that her readers post something in bloom in our respective houses today. I had hoped to show a picture of the orchid that I have coaxed into bloom again, but the buds have not yet popped.
So I headed outside and asked Dan to photograph the emu bush, Eremophila, that is blooming in a pot. It is not cold-hardy enough to be planted in the landscape and frankly, I am very surprised that it survived the last cold snap. Better get the blanket ready for tonight, because we are in for some more Weather.
I have to make note of the fact that we took our conditioning hike today (one never knows how the weather will be the rest of the week), and when we left the parking lot, a family of javelina crossed the road right in front of us: 3 adults and 2 babies which were the size of chihuahuas. Too bad I did not have the camera in hand. They are too cute.
