I couldn't really think of taking pictures but it is hard to climb off the bandwagon when you have been on it for months with the garden. I think I am going through the dreaded "garden withdrawal" I thought I might not get it until January ? Is that realistic ??
In any case we actually WANT moss to grow between the patio bricks .. I want to lift some and plant "steppables" like some tough sedum and things like Woolly Thyme .. to break up the hardscape of the brick ... can you tell I am running out of space and a bit of panic is happening in my garden brain ?
I just love my Karly Rose fountain grass .. she is such a trooper .. the way the dusting of snow is on the table .. the metal lantern .. and the solar light .. it all looked pretty to me.
This is the remarkable passionflower vine I bought for hubby this past year .. he so desperately wants to have it survive the winter here .. I don't think it will but by god look how green that sucker is still ! ... could a miracle happen here folks ? .. is the lottery NEXT on the "TO DO" list of impossibilities ???
Last but pretty well wonderful to me, is my ancient Christmas cactus .. I have had it for years .. I have treated it shamefully .. and yet it has given me such wonderful gifts with each bud .. I have heard some people think these little sweethearts are passe` .. but I love them and can't imagine not having at least one .. to ignore it, then be suddenly and wonderfully surprised that it doesn't hate me, and will flower no matter my terrible attitude at times
How can you not love a plant like that ?
So "this" was "that" type of day today .. I'm wearing my red pajamas with penguins on them .. they are my comfort blanket !
