It's in the 70's, the sun is shining, and my mom and I golfed in shirt sleeves--I know why all the snowbirds winter here!
I've had trouble finding time to blog, but here are a few shots from our gardens. First, some of my sister's whimsy: her lady bug next to some Coleus--
And a wrought iron snail on her patio--
Tacoma stans, or yellow bells, is still is full bloom here--and apparently this plant will grow in North Carlina--so maybe I can keep it going in Virginia--
And flowers more familar to me don't seem to realize it's almost January! My mom's roses and petunias look like mine do in June (and I learned there are no Japanese beetles in the Phoenix area).
Wherever you are, I hope you are warm and happy and safe. Best wishes for 2009! Cosmo
