Spectacular! This is the first Cynomorium coccineum I've seen posted on Twitter in a while, has posted a few. Is it blooming in response to your recent heavy rains? The parasitic family Cynomoriaceae is in the order Saxifragales.

And thank you! A fun, adaptable plant, loves heat outdoors & takes a little bit of cold. Now in its 3rd year it's filling out, yet maintaining a fairly compact, shrubby habit. Makes a big root system & seems to prefer being slightly overpotted.

Yes, good eye! Inga & Calliandra flowers (not foliage) are very similar to Albizia julibrissin (Silk Tree, or "Mimosa" by courtesy, as Mimosa is a separate genus). All those, & many others, are in the clade (fka subfamily) Mimosoideae, within the Fabaceae (Bean/Pea Family).

WHY WAIT FOR FIREWORKS? Inga (fka Calliandra) emarginata (Pink Powerpuff) is day neutral, blooms any season, in or out - evenly moist for best flowering. Pic 3 clouds & flash. TY for noting systematics & phylogeny of these taxa are messy, in need of much work. Fabaceae

Looks like the cold, wet conditions here have made the perfect home for this widow under a rock in my garden! 😎😄 (PS: The widow is ok. I know they're hard-working spiders that use the same web their whole life, so I EVER so carefully placed the rock back. :)

Definitely agree with Susan Orlean, though I think there is too much swearing. Loses impact. Save it for the concrete masonry unit dropped on your toe, or equivalent. And to insult someone, try being clever:)

Yesterday was fabulous. Today it rained all day. It was a lovely quiet rest. Then we had a beautiful sunset.

At sunset this evening, it was very cold and damp, but the oak silhouettes were irresistible.

The flowers of Lophostemon confertus (Queensland brush box) are quite exquisite. Tree from Queensland and north-east New South Wales
