This is one of my Coleus from last year (2005). This was a tall Coleus that tried to bloom as much as it could.
I took cuttings of this to overwinter and it survived at work, but the main stem recently started to die and all I was left with were the small tips.
I cut the remaining tips off and those are now in ICU at home under growlights. They look like they may make it.
I just noticed that this photo was taken last year on Thanksgiving. It’s colors are very autumn-esque.
Taken on Friday on my way home from work.
Red-masked Conure (Aratinga erythrogenys) atop a traffic light on the corner of Drumm and Clay in San Francisco.
These are the bird featured in the film “The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill“. Here’s a link to rent it from Netflix.
After their tiff, they fell off, but were able to fly away without hitting the pavement (or cars).
I spent yesterday (Saturday) doing a little bit of cleanup on my three vegetable beds in the backyard.
