Another story for Fruit and all. DH wanted to extend our porch. When can we get the wood he said, "lets wait, said I" About a month later his bro offered us some great wood he had used for a foundation for a spa which he had taken out. Exactly the wood we needed, top notch already painted. Just the right amount with 1 or 2 boards left. I havta say "God is good!"
Happy New Year Dem and all. Rose Parade had some very touching moments this year. Living in So.Cal. I've been a few times. My dad worked at one point in a hotel on Colorado Blvd. in Pasadena. Used to sit on the fire escape as a child to watch it.
Recently got a garden path installed. Thinking of lining it with red geranium, started from my daughters wedding arrangements. They have varigated leaves which I love. Free plants, meaningful plants...YES!!
Wish I had woods in by back yard. However do have many meaningful things. Makes me so happy! Daughter married over 2 years ago. It takes me a while to come up with ideas. It's an ahaa moment. Love when that happens!!
Actually it was snowing today as I went on my walk. It was partly sunny and I thought it would be nice for a walk. I bundled up in my down jacket, scarf and hat. I am trying to get active as much as I can as I tend to stay inside during winter, especially when it is cold. It is cold now. I was surprised to see that the lettuce had survived...so far...
Yes the SoCal valleys as well as the Sacramento valleys all have freeze warnings. I have my lettuce covered and so far, it is doing OK. They do not grow much in the very cold weather, but they are alive, so far.
My watering can is frozen solid now. I guess that it will be cold again tonight.
I have a wonderful climbing rose on my arbor. It's called Cecile Brunner. It's straggly and sad looking. Wish it would grow bushey and full like the one I've seen on some sort of insurance commerical. :(
