Mandevilla and liriope in bloom
Soaked by rain, the wild liriope went crazy with purple flowers. Thanks to a post by an anonymous commenter, I now know a bit of the relationship, in Greek mythology, between Liriope and Narcissus. Narkissos was her son, and was transformed into the eponymous flower after his short, self-adoring life.
A neighbor does a beautiful job of cultivating flowers, like this Mandevilla. A nice perk for all who live nearby!
