After an unplanned sabbatical from most chores, I am trying to get back to semi normal duties. Yard duty is one on the things on my list to tackle in wee steps, especially since it is so hot outside already. These elephant ears are in front of my studio/nest window. I brought bulbs from our lake house 20 years ago and planted them here. I thought I had lost them all one year when we had a really harsh winter...but enough survived to replenish the area. Miracles of survival.
