Fall tradition.

Every autumn I take pictures of coral-petaled Hesperantha coccinea, also known as Schizostylis coccinea (Common name crimson flag).  Here they bloom from late summer until the weather turns wintery, and provide startling colour as the rest of the perennials brown and die back.

This is the Paulik Park patch, which has done well over the past couple of years.

You may have noticed that I have also done something different, something new.  I have changed RPL's template.  Now 2 sidebars!
