    This is the first blooming on this plant that has struggled until now. There is only one flower on this spike but there are at least 4 buds on the immature inflorescence visible in the plant photo.

    The flower may open more. If it does I'll update with better photos.

    There is a lot of wildfire smoke in the air today so the colors were off (too yellow). I tried to compensate in post-processing and I think I got it fairly close.

    Very nice, but I'd be tempted to play with the trigger!

    Pretty!

    But more importantly, STAY SAFE!

    Thank you, Ree.
    We had to evacuate Thursday pm and were able to come home today. We are some of the lucky ones since there have been over 700 homes destroyed in and around Redding from the Carr fire. The evacuation, and seeing flames come over the nearby ridge, was an event I will never forget.
