Despite the heat and humidity, one plant seems to be impervious: Cleome, or spider flower. Even with very little rain this summer, it continues to shine….

another take

I shot this at sunset, so was lucky to get some golden bokeh too.

Hope your week’s going well….

    I have never seen this plant before, fascinating.
    The sparkle gives it something even more unexpected.

    Lovely plant. I, too, have never heard of it. It looks like tiny dancing ballerinas.

    What a pretty little thing Cleome is! I’ve never seen anything like quite it. Perrenial? The heat wave up here lasted almost three weeks, but it doesn’t sound nearly as severe as what you’ve been experiencing. Hope you feel cool breezes and normal temperatures soon, Carole.

    • At first I thought it was an annual, but it keeps coming up in the exact same places, so it’s a perennial. We’re finally having a gorgeous day here, Cheryl. Actually got to eat breakfast outside!

    I’ve never seen this plant before. And once again, the colors are so restful for the eyes.
