Backyard updates

Buffalo burr
Lo and behold, a buffalo bur (Solanum rostratum) appeared in the back yard a few days ago. Right now, you'll see their bright yellow flowers alongside highways and across fields. Beautiful though they are, their stems are VERY prickly. So it's best to admire them from afar.

Chile pequin
Our two chile pequins (Capsicum annuum) that we planted earlier this summer are blooming and putting on fruit! The little chiles will turn bright red soon. That'll be pretty!

Flame acanthus
And our flame acanthus tilted over, much to my dismay. But now it's bushing out and looking really healthy! The change in angle doesn't seem to bother it at all.
