My cats don't get photographed often because they are not around often. I Ching does not admit that I live here and provide for all her needs. Violet never appears when I have visitors but the rest of the time she is omnipresent. She is a great, lap-sitting cat who loves to be petted and talked to.
If you've been paying attention, you know that I love Clivia. I love the color of the flowers and theit aroma. In their new home here they each flower several times a year. In Royal Oak they were picky eaters. I started with one decades ago. By harvesting seeds I've managed to produce maybe eight more, keeping three and sharing the others. The seeds take more than a year to mature. Like humans the seeds take nourishment from the parent plant placenta-like to give them a head start on life. The red seed on the right below is more than a year old now. It will be ready to plant when a new root and small leaves poke through the red seed coat. Immediately below are several seedlings that are about three years old. They grow slowly but live a long time.
Of course I have to add some sunrises.
I went back to Cora in Royal Oak today to do my taxes. If my president doesn't pay taxes though, why should I - I wonder.
