Here in Delta, we're a bit cooler; 30 °C (86 °F). It's still 'way too hot for me; I'm a product of the westcoast rain forest. I'm glad to have my shade garden, with its sheltering circle of tall evergreens. I cringe away from the naked sun of our summers.
But these cool suns from Vancouver Island, I have no trouble with:
Sunfish, otherwise known as the sunflower star. Cool and wet. Lovely!
Deep red sunflower star, under a couple of inches of water.
This one's a baby, barely a couple of inches tip to tip.
And I may as well add a few stars, too.
A pink brittle star, maybe the Daisy brittle star. It is less than the width of my thumbnail.
Long-armed brittle star, burrowing into the sand. Also very tiny.
Blood star, of some sort. Long, skinny arms.
A small leather star. I like the sunburst in the centre; two rows of brown dots connected by radiating lines.
And the ubiquitous purple star.
Four purple stars. One is pinkish orange, but it's still a purple star. Names can be confusing.
Aaahhh! I feel cooler, already.
