Beautiful light, beautiful weather

Even though we've had some unusual weather, I've more or less enjoyed it.  We had rain and humidity in the last few weeks, which is odd so So Cal. But many plants are enjoying the tropical vacation.  In particular the giant dutchman's pipe (Aristolochia gigantea) is reveling in heat AND humidity.  Usually if it gets hot and dry these comically large blooms get seared by the heat and often don't even open, burnt crisp by the sun.

The other night I took some photos in that fabulous sunset produced light.


  1. So glad you took photos of your "spirit" plant which is such an amazing presence on that wall. I took no photos of this area last night which is looking so freakin' amazing now. What nice party favors Arist. gigantea makes!

  2. Dustin, ton jardin est magnifique !!!! bravo bravo bravo
