Sunday is our "family reunion." It's in quotes because I only know of one cousin who's coming. That's okay, we can have a nice chat, which is impossible when there's a crowd. Plus, my immediate family will be there and that is always fun.
For the last couple of weeks I've been really enjoying these flowers. They are in huge pots outside of my building. These photos are of the pot that's near the parking lot. I think they're lantana. They begin yellow and then the florets darken as they age so the center is always the lightest and the outer florets always darker. They remind me of the velvet paper posies ladies wore in the 1950s.
