It was too hot for the middle of December...even for southern California. It's suppose to cool down by the end of the week...maybe even some rain.

Maybe some time you can photograph some leaves closer... to show the variety of colours and markings ?

Terratoonie:

Yes, I've done that in the past. I will do it again...and I have 3 other varieties which have been in pots for a couple of years. I'll photograph those also.
