Near frost, Garden, Roscoe

Tropical plants are amazing. Through very high heat (100f/37.8c) and either drought or days of soaking rain, these elephant ears (colocasia) don't even flinch. They just get bigger and spread underground. But let there be one night of temperatures between 35f/1.7c and 40f/4.4c and they just turn brown and die back to the ground. They'll be back.

Perfect - the way you portraied it, this looks like a mountain ridge.

Thank you. It didn't hit me that way until I was working on the file.
