rare in winter



Green -- a rare color these days.  We do have a bit of it in our front yard thanks to efforts made in the fall to add some evergreen plants to the mix.  This past weekend we were out spreading mulch over spots where  rain had washed the soil bare.  The plants seem happy.  Bulbs are coming up.  But I'm afraid they're all in for a shock later today or tomorrow because we have SNOW coming!  Now's a good time to give my houseplants a little care.  Poor Mr. Aloe Vera is not too happy with me these days after having left him in a cold, dark room for weeks on end.

Enjoy your Wednesday!
