Tuesday; chores;

This morning in the garden
I tidied a clump of giant Heliconia bihai;
it can grow to 3 meters or higher.
It had lots of dried leaves and stalks to cut out.
Its beautiful, interesting flowers are just emerging. 

Some rather tired blooms of Epiphyllum oxipetalum,
 no wonder they were open all night
 to welcome the night flying moths.

Looking up,
clouds are shifting and pushing  the summer sky  into cobalt blue fragments. 

It was hot and sweaty work, not yet finished, but the clump looks already so much better again.
