Flame acanthus

Flame acanthus
Also called hummingbird bush
(Anisacanthus quadrifidus)

8 a.m. – In the back yard, we planted a flame acanthus earlier this summer, and it just started blooming this week. Pretty! Plus it's been raining in recent days so EVERYONE'S happy in our Wildscape.

2 p.m. – The sun came out so I went back outside with my camera for fun. Caught some insects in action. Look close, and you'll see a tiny ant crawling inside the cigar plant's bloom.
