Pretty picture: Callirhoe involucrata


Another work plant. These only started blooming a couple weeks ago. I'm often surprised when a new plant at work starts flowering; I apparently always subconsciously assume that I've seen all the flowers already, and then something else starts to bloom and I realize no, wait, there's another one.

You'd think, now that it's been a year (today's the one-year anniversary for this job, actually), that I should have seen everything already, but in fact I was so overwhelmed when I started the job, just with trying to keep track of all the tropical plants, that I didn't even try very hard to figure out which perennials were which. So I should be able to keep discovering new stuff for years.
