I take a lot of photographs, and sometimes get a good one.

Still enjoying the peaches!

My small (semi-dwarf) peach tree produced lots of peaches this summer!

Did I say the dogwood trees are blooming?

Fortunate breaks in the clouds let us watch most of the action around 9:45 to about 10:15. This photograph was taken at 10:08.

Watching My Plants Bloom

I have finally gotten everything back together to get from the camera to the blog! Meanwhile, my Alocacia x Amazonica has blossomed again and unfurled another new leaf.

The seed pod that I was watching did not mature. The stem wilted , and I was not able to gather any seed to see if I could start new plants from seed.

More photos over on Flickr in the set –

I am still enjoying my new Macintosh and trying to figure out what it is doing.

Politics aside for a moment –

Look! My Alocasia x Amazonica is getting another new leaf! It appears that this one will not be as tall as the last one — maybe an effect of the cooler temperatures, maybe a difference in watering. Click on the photo for more images, some with blossoms!

For the past two weeks we have been saying we’ll decorate the tree tomorrow, but we are beginning to think the ivy looks good with a sprinkling of holiday glitter.
