It may be happening in other parts of the world
.... but here in Florida we are already
hitting record temperatures ....

beautiful bit of season ...
which is my favorite!
This weeks blog features an older design

|In the past I've thoroughly enjoyed gardening.|
Anything I plant here has to make it on

My granddaughter loves to ask you what

So true, although the new green of spring
really touches my heart.
|My Little Flower Child ...|
this one has my heart in a tighter grip
than she has on those dandelions!
|Lilacs seem to be a favorite of many.|
It had been so long since I'd seen one
in person ... I didn't even realize
this was a different variety.
