Second Bloom

This is my scarlet epiphyllum, now in its second bloom.  Magnificent, isn't it.  See the pink plant's flowers here.

I don't know whether they'll always bloom twice a year, maybe they just had a lot of oomph this first year of blooming.  The second blooms on both plants, though, are far lovelier than the first flowers they put out a couple months ago.

Went to my last of three painting classes on Saturday and now I'm gearing up to paint!  Also to do some printing on paper again.

Welcome to autumn!  Our weather on the North Coast changed right on schedule, with rain the last few days...still, I know we'll have warmer temps again for a while.  The air and light have begun to speak fall, though.  Enjoy it ~ autumn is my favorite time of year.

It's my favorite time of the year too. I love the angle and the nature of the light and the cooler temperatures. I enjoy being outside and wearing a jacket. Mind you, tomorrow it is going to be 70 degrees Fahrenheit.

What an extraordinary blossom that is on your plant. It looks like it came straight from the tropics.

Wow, what a gloriously bright flower! autumn came on schedule here as well. One day mild next day the chill is at your back and soon it will be on your face. Ahhh seasons!
Have a beautiful day
