And wind. If you notice this little collection of flowers looking quite dissheveled, it is! I wanted very much to shoot this out in the sunlight in the patio. I took one set of pictures while the wind battered the stems from one side of the vase to the other. Then I gave it up, took everything back indoors, and rearranged the whole. Back outside for a second try. With roughly the same results. Be assured that the vaseful is now happily residing in the kitchen.
I love the colour and exuberance of Russelia. It must be admitted that its habit could never be described as neat even in the absence of strong winds. But it wins hearts anyway.
Rambling in the Garden.
It looks like we might still get a little more rain. It can be hard to tell with Arizona clouds, as they tend to drop moisture fairly sporadically as they move across. Here is the view across our wall and the neighbors' flowering trees (identity unknown, to me at any rate).
