Plants plants plants, they are hanging onto the warm afternoons. Tomatoes are ripening, chilis are getting fat alongside the aubergines, all for harvest before the first frost. Nights and mornings are in the 40’s and by mid afternoon we are in the mid 80’s and the poor plants don’t know what to think. It is ‘boots in the morning’ and ‘flip flops by the afternoon’ kinda weather!
This little barrel cactus lives on my kitchen windowsill, he is an indoor cactus whereas the rest live outside in the summer, and they all squeeze into an inside spot like a shelf or a clearing at the table for the winter. As the nights are getting colder, the plants are starting to jostle for space inside as I bring them in gradually. As usual, they are all a little bigger than last winter!
Next week’s Through the Lens Thursday prompt is ‘Spicy’.
