Aging vs maturing


The mystery plant (which may be Arum maculatum) is aging—no surprise, and the spathe* is now drying and becoming less delicate. Compare to four days ago….

KW, over at ababsurdo, has a picture of an actual JITP (jack-in-the-pulpit).

* For enquiring minds, the spathe is the hood-like bract, which grows “around” the yellow spadix, the spiky inflorescence.

Comment: yesterday’s tomatoes…yup, visibly larger today.
