Lenten Roses don't require a lot of water, so they have done well during this most recent drought. I appreciate their beautiful colors during this rather drab time of the year.
Another plant that welcomes folks to our house during late winter is my Daphne Odora:
I caught this glimpse of our lake this evening as I was passing through the livingroom:
That is precisely why we can never leave this house!
And if you're wondering how I have spent my day, here's my trusty companion to give you a clue:
Yes, Barker and I have been packing up the kitchen ALL DAY LONG!!! But look, we've made progress:
C and I are eating our last meal on our regular plates this evening. I will pack the last few things up this evening after dinner, and it'll be paper around here for a while. I've tried to be orderly in my packing, but it is difficult, As soon as I think I can seal up one box, C comes walking in and says, "Where's the ____________? I need it for __________." I could just about clobber him, but then in another minute, I'm looking for something too! It'll be a real adjustment, but it is going to be sooooo worth it!
I hope you had a nice and artfully creative day.......or just had fun doing what you like to do!
