the winter garden is exuberant.
we've had more rain than last year at this time and it shows.
everything is budding & blossoming.
some of the succulents are trying to become giants.
the sky looks like this:
flotillas of clouds drifting by. soon the rain will begin.
i was hoping it would be here by now.
the bougainvillia is a bramble thicket.
some sort of winged creature is creeping down the burgundy wine euphorbia branch in the photo above. i didn't notice him when i was taking the picture.
for the first time in the history of never the lemon tree has a lemon.
maybe i'll get a bumper crop of peaches this year.
the african sumac tree is behaving strangely and having erratic growth spurts. its the juvenile delinquent of the garden.
the red bougainvillia is sending out long branches that i wind around the fence.
some of the oleanders are beginning to flower and others are making giant seed pods.
if you're buried under a blanket of cold try and find an air pocket to breathe through. spring is heading your way.
i wouldn't kid about a thing like that. HOLD ON. and please do enjoy a big roaring fire for me.
