365 Days of Botany: Day 29

Posted in: 

I looooove these. I remember trying to grow them one summer in Saskatoon, but I don't think they lasted very long. I wish I could remember what they're called (anyone know? verdict is in c/o my mom: moss roses or Portulaca grandiflora). Someone in the neighbourhood has some very nice ones growing, I especially love the coral colour (below).

I was going to start an extra special piece for this 365 project today, but it is so bloody hot that my brain isn't really working anymore, so I'm going to chip away at it for another day. Too many things on the go at once, and so many other things I want to do! Now that my creative juices are flowing, I just can't get enough!

The summer is going fast, but I'm okay with that because this heat is really not helping with my productivity. Maybe I'll just close my eyes for a minute... Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz....
