Arid Mushrooms

Kurakdot grows on driftwood, on an arid beach. Quite a surprise!

Coffee Blossoms

This year the coffee blossoms are angry!!! That's a good thing. After last year's paltry "harvest", this is a welcome process. Coffee blossoms smell so good-- like a rounded-out jasmine. They are also so beautiful-- like pompoms along stems.

This is a robusta variety that loves the heat (making it suitable for my garden). Though less "smooth" than arabica, the freshness should make it all worth it!
