Imperfect goodness—branch-scarred rind, still sweet and yummy inside. If I could do it over, I’d only plant edible fruit-bearing trees in our yard, and no ornamentals. Mango season is over for us until the next flowering, and it’s the guava’s turn.

Heatstroke in the garden; yup, plants do get #sunburn
and extra watering won’t help them —be sure you only water in the cooler early morning or late evening hours, and never on top of plants, just at their base.
You know it’s a hotter than hot summer when the plants which normally love generous helpings of sunlight get these burns. I’m wishing our wrap-around deck was covered, but that still wouldn’t work for everything in our yard.

Baby first, bloom later; my #echinocactus
has a wee one (photos 2,3,4) and is no longer a singular sensation. It has never bloomed so I’ve yet to identify it definitively, yet it’s had quite a growth spurt this past year. #cactus #auhiligarden2018 #rsayAugust2018
Last night’s sunset, driving through Parker Ranch. Can never take just 1 photograph! #rsayAugust2018
Kalanchoe ruffles. Moving a lot of pots this morning as Hurricane Hector gets closer to get them out of the windy pathways wrapping around our house. An ounce of prevention requires a whole lot of work. #kalanchoe #rsayAugust2018 #weatherwoes
Full on gardening day, thanks to this instigator: these were all in that small blue colander growing like a hen and chicks, until a gust of wind sent it crashing to the ground, so all got new homes. One thing led to another as will usually happen once I mix a couple of 5-gallon buckets worth of potting soil. #weekends #gardening #succulents #auhiligarden2018 #rsayAugust2018
