...when you learn something you suddenly start seeing it everywhere? Yep; I was out in the garden this afternoon with the afternoon, and saw a dark shape flitting through the trees.
Red Spotted Purple Butterfly, again.
Dog Day Cicada moving between trees.
The plant grows slowly, but surely, and in the past 10 years or so, has only put up new sets of leaves every two or three years.
They don't like cold weather, so we have bring it in before frosts, although it will tolerate a light frost.
Someday, I'll make Alex take it....
