the fire in the sky meet the fire in the earth via a metaphorical intermediary.  Nyiragongo – named for a volcano located in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.  and on the morning of this picture the fire came together in the flower.  two images

It was a fun afternoon.  Got to show another gardener around the daylilies.  And afterwards to play with the pollen.   Then this darkness thing started.  It is a good thing the pollen kind a glows on the tip of the pistol.  Well just enough to see until it gets really dark.  I think the mosquitoes enjoyed my time out there.  Oh and to answer last night’s mystery question – the seeds were still on the car bumper and they did not try to follow me to work today!  They are sitting on the dining room table waiting to move to a paper envelope.
