garden gifts


in all the hustle and bustle of the holidays, mother nature is quietly going about her business and gifting us here in north florida with simple pleasures.




this explosion of december pink and yellow is such a treat in my back-porch-garden.....





and it looks like there's lots more to come!

Beautiful....although our weather has been extremely mild this season, it's looking as if winter may visit us this week in the Northeast!!! Enjoy the beauty...
