    Couldn't resist the "paint splattered" caladium, and the color on the mandevilla type bloom was incredible, much more peachy than the photo. The last is some type of brom.

    Fun to see. Nice to know that flowers are still blooming elsewhere--duh. It's easy to forget when everything is dried up and getting ready for winter around here.
