      Same to you, Al. I am interested to find out how your Lenten vow turned out.

    And the plant looks like a party hat…saying surprise spring has arrived.

      Well said, Carol. This is a small part of a volunteer plant that was transplanted 2 years ago and now covers a fifteen foot section of our hillside. The rains this year must be tainted with steroids.

        Wow. That is a surprise. Something to remember when I need ground cover. Steroids indeed!!

          FYI: I just found out that it is considered an invasive non-native species. It is drought-resistant, however, and quite pretty. The hillsides of Sausalito are covered with them. Some of the blooms are the size of elephant trunks.

    Happy Easter, Allan 🐣🐰🐣
    wishing you relaxing holidays,
    Dina & the rest of the gang 🌼
