The temperature is dropping. Seriously. It is cool enough outside to require a sweatshirt in the morning. It was 79° when I was out at 6:30!
The flowering bushes and vines in the back yard are luvin' it! The jacquemontia is in full bloom [I think the mealy bugs are under control at this point]:
The bougainvillea is finally taking off:
And the camel's foot, which was planted directly in the dirt with cuttings from another plant [don't think that I didn't shake my head in utter disbelief that anything would ever grow like that - but it did!], is going absolutely wild at this point:
We need to put up a trellis - or string - or wire - or something - to get the vines to start climbing and covering the walls like they are supposed to.
