Feelin' Hot Hot Hot!

 See this pepper? Cute, yes-also waay too hot! See the lip swelling in the second picture? I wish the heat were visible, because it was really intense for about 20 minutes! This is 'Tepin' pepper, with fruits only the size of a pea. Birds like them, but they are too hot for me-as in habanero heat! More info:

Domino Delights

Look at this beauty! This is Echinopsis subdenudata / Dominos cactus demonstrating the most prolific bloom yet-NINE flowers at once! It had two blossoms at once before this spectacular display. LOVE it!😍

Another Garden Solution

My houseplants have been very patient with my current low-light situation for over 2 years, but the effects are evident. So enter online superstore YesComUSA ! They have tons of things useful all around the house, including this LED grow light. At first glance out of the box, all I see are these little squares...

...hanging hardware is included...

...closeup looks very interesting. Are these little squares really "lightbulbs"?

....yes! Wow, these are SUPER bright and intense! My plants are gonna LOVE this!
Thank you YesComUSA!

Just One More...

This apartment is lame. Not because it's 1970's construction, rather due to the fact that the "deck" above this lower patio has one glaring flaw... has no solid floor! So if the lower tenant wants to sit outside, well, it's just not cool if the upstairs tenant is outdoors also. (Not to mention the particulate matter/"stranger dirt" that rains down always.) What to do?

I found the solution at The LA Shop ! They have a huge variety of items for outdoor living, pets, and just about anything else you can think of - and I found this great market umbrella. Very sturdy, and large enough to stop the gross "rain of terror". The summer patio enjoyment is saved!
