I can't say I'm thrilled that the temperature reached 91° today on my corner of Katy. It's made slightly less appalling by the first blooms of the Freesia laxa, also known as Anomatheca laxa, or my favorite of its many botanical names, Lapeirousia laxa. Roll that baby around on your tongue! The common name for this wee beauty is Woodland Painted Petals.
I am even less thrilled that a mosquito was buzzing me as I was outside writing this post. Wrong. Just plain wrong.
