Whew! Hot again today. Otto has been lecturing for thirty years about global warming. Now he is planning to install a heat pump enhanced with his own Enabler; it will heat and cool our house.
I promised an update on Otto's wandering trumpet vine. Actually it is doing its job of covering the unsightly fence rather well, but the neighboring trees next door, as well as in our yard are irregularly festooned with clumps of ruby blossoms high in their branches. I took the following photo in a parking lot where a fence was trumpet-vine covered with similar intent. Where it had no trees to climb in, the trumpet vine produced this lush display.
