Spent #WordlessWednesday

I took this picture early this morning just before dawn broke. I believe this plant is called a “smoke bush.”

The morning air was a nippy 57 degrees with bright blue skies and finally, finally some hope the temperatures were cooling. And they did but only slightly. Tomorrow should be a repeat of today.

Meanwhile the red quill is spent. It’s five and a half inch stalk now lies on the ground, it’s tip propped up by other plants also dying.

  1. We had a house with a smoke bush in the yard. It was pretty, but all the leaves that dropped off the trees would get caught in it. I didn’t mind, but my husband took the messiness personally.

  2. WOW! Thanks, Jan.

  3. How appropriate is a smoke bush for this past summer and fall filled with smoke. Nice that the cooler temperatures are FINALLY arriving. Up in the north bay many of us, my household included, have been without power for two days. Let’s hope this new season gives our dry foliage some soakings…. Take care, Jan.

  4. We are clearly all envious of that fantastic view!😊 But I understand the fires & drought impinge on the beauty, especially since they’re unpredictable and open-ended. I’m glad the smoke has cleared for you.
