Anyone know this little feller? It comes every spring through a crack in the concrete about the time my piennies start to bud, which is early spring. The flowers open and close throughout the day...notice the flower clusters. The honey bees, butterflies and hummingbirds frequent this plant thoroughly which makes for a busy little nectar intersection. I think my fig tree might benefit from the attention this plant gets. Yes, I did say fig tree. Anyone know about the rare Missouri fig tree?
One thing that's been bothering me is the passing of Jay Bennett. Here's a link to a live version of a beautiful album called The Palace at 4am. It would have been a dream of mine to record at Pieholden, Jay's studio. I would have quit all my other fantasies for the duration to do so.
