Valiantly blooming

 Through many freezes, here are geranium and marigolds still on the porch blooming...even with snow! Maybe this is their last hurrah.

While in a sunny indoor window this Christmas Cactus decided to finally bloom.

While the African Violets just keep plugging away with blooms

My kitchen must seem tropical to them.

Today's quote:
She seems to have lived more freed from the expectations of her society than hobbled by her refusal to accommodate them. about George Elliot by Writers Almanac by Garrison Keillor


  1. amazing they are blooming, yesterday I went out back and noticed a vinca vine planted on our hillside had a flower ?
