RL broke out the nailbat this week, I’m still scraping time together to finish chapter 5 of Track. (Needs about 2.5 scenes written, but when you’re lucky to manage 300 words in a whole day…. argh.) So. Some semi-random life pics. 🙂
We had a visitor in the carport.
Pandora Sphinx moth. They eat grapes and Virginia creeper; we have wild varieties of both in the area.
Summer is a constant battle against the greenery, especially after it rains. Vines tend to be particularly tenacious. This one isn’t greenbriar, at least, but it’s going for almost as much height.
(You might see a brown anole in there. Maybe. He was there when I took the pic, I swear.)
I’ll say this for Habanero plants; they not only dish out the heat, they can take it. This one’s been setting fruit even in 90+ degree weather. Don’t think any tomato can do that….
Not that tomatoes do well in Florida. If you’re not a major grower with all kinds of -cides, tomato plants tend to curl up and die. Indeterminates like cherry tomatoes do the best, versus the gemini-viruses that wipe out determinates.
And this one goes to show that even when your azalea looks dead, dead, totally dead… it may not be.
