Surprises and not-surprises

Early bulb DEC on Amsterdam

When we walked today, I expected to find the odd azalea bloom, but not this bulb’s flower, or the not-pictured redbud. I’m thinking this is some twist of La Niña plus global warming.

Meanwhile, we’ve spent the day periodically raiding the fridge and kitchen in general for leftovers.


Extra points to anyone who recognizes the structure behind the bloom….
