Twining and flying

The cooler weather has brought another attempt by the roses to leaf out again and also blossoms all over the chiles and the lantanas. The lantanas are going into that phase just in time to suit all the monarch butterflies we're suddenly seeing. Even the morning glories are beginning to look alive again. We counted 18 flowers this morning, which may not seem like many, but it is. And speaking of vines, the resurgent cucumbers are stretching out, just covered with yellow flowers everywhere. They're attractive to the honeybees. We expect clockvine flowers soon.
