The Arum italicum plants, which produced orange berries in July/August and then died off, are emerging again. The leaves emerge in autumn and are evergreen throughout winter in warmer climates. Since this is my first time watching them grow, I will note how they do in winter here. The leaves are similar to caladium and resemble Jack-in-the-Pulpit.
A spot of red caught my eye in the front yard. I investigated and found one lonesome azalea bloom on an azalea bush stuffed between two other bushes. The yard of this rental house keeps surprising me with unexpected blooms.
