I spotted Rusty hiding behind my pot of roses. He must like the pretty flowers in an unusually bright shade of magenta.
Here he is, lying beside the plant.
I spotted it at the nursery last week. Being the only one in this striking colour, it stood out like a sore thumb in the rose section. I had to bring it home to brighten up my patio. My yellow roses suddenly pale in comparison.
The portulaca (Japanese Rose) is flowering like crazy. It's a coincidence the flowers are in a shade of shocking magenta.
