Outdoors ~ weirdness abounds. I was taking pictures out there, this morning, without a coat on. It's that warm. In January. In a ski resort.
|Up close & personal with my favorite Kalanchoe|
By some bizarre stroke of luck, ALL of my Kalanchoes burst into bloom last week.
|I squeeze all the colors into one big pot so it has a garden bed effect.|
|I don't have the nicest house but I do have a killer view.|
|A few fab re-blooming Orchids. Hopefully more, next month.|
I wish I could photograph her properly (her petals sparkle!) but I don't have a good enough camera... I used to have an entire window of these pretty violets until somebody (I'm not naming names, though it could be me) left them out on the deck on a freezing night.
One of the very few freezing nights we've had this year.
Winter has not yet arrived. I'm beginning to wonder if it ever will.
It's disturbing to me that the trees are not dropping their leaves. (Leaves are shed to ensure a tree's winter survival so the fact that they don't feel compelled to drop their leaves seems odd. Perhaps you know what's going on? If so, please fill me in.)
And, I'm doubly worried about the fact that they're budding. In January. Isn't that strange?
I'll leave you with a pic of my favorite houseplant, Auntie Edna...
Happy Bloom Day, Everyone!
