Just Some Snapshots 16


Although it’s February and climate experts said we’d have a helluva El Niño, it hasn’t really appeared.  Even if it starts to rain here and there from now, the deluge they’ve been warning us Southern Californians about for half a year will not materialize.

So the drought will continue…

In the meantime, I thought I’d take advantage of the clear blue skies and took some snapshots out in front.

Some winter hummingbirds.  They love the tree aloe blooms in my neighbor’s yard:

And there’s a bazillion of these Kalanchoe Lavender Scallops Variegata (Kalanchoe fedtschenkoi) blooming:

This little succulent bloom is at the tip of thin, bright green stalks and is about maybe 1/3″ in diameter.  The photo below shows the blooms in different stages of opening.
