After a moderate start (temperature-wise), August has started to heat up. I shouldn’t complain as the temps will only get into the lower 90s and it’s not supposed to last long but I don’t do well in the heat. However, my strange plant seems to love it.
The mother plant is now up to my shoulder – approximately five feet tall.
Over the weekend they started to bend over as if getting ready to strike.
And then this morning:
The first blossoms.
Update at 4:30: Well, it got to almost 100 miserable degrees here and isn’t cooling down any time soon. Supposedly tomorrow a bit of a cool down but we’ll see!
