Recently, we posted a pic of our special bougainvillea and tonight we’d like to share a few more shots. The flowers featured here have been in our 10 x 10 backyard greenhouse all winter. We have hibiscus plants, sago palms, banana trees, a wandering jew, a variegated bougainvillea and that plant with the beautiful orange blooms. We bought it two years ago, and after almost losing it last winter, we were able to nurse it back to health and showcase it in one of our many flower beds over the summer. It was nestled in a corner of the greenhouse this past winter and to our welcomed surprise it started putting out new leaves and beautiful orange blooms a few weeks ago. Long story short- we don’t remember what the plant is called.
If anyone is familiar with it, please feel free to enlighten us….
(we inadvertently forgot to get pictures of our hibiscus plants but we’ll be sure and post some when we do)
Hope you enjoy—-
Hi, is this an odd name for a blog or what? We'd actually prefer it to be known as a peaceful, magical and mystical spot. It's a spot where you can stop in for a daily dose of love and laughter sprinkled with a bit of chaos, confusion and lunacy. You can get great recipes and cooking tips, as well as drilling and building ideas. Who does that? Who knows their way around the kitchen and around the tool shed?
Well, I guess that's part of what'll make this blog so interesting - that and the brief glimpse you'll get into a very elite and exclusive lifestyle - one that supports a "never a dull moment" and "everything ain't for everybody" attitude.
By the way, remember to keep an open mind (no judging or finger pointing), a watchful eye (be on the lookout for random giveaways), and a positive -pay it forward-attitude (everybody could use an occasional leg up).
Now I know it sounds easy, but don't get it twisted, this "dance ain't for everybody", it's not always a bowl full of cherries, but we make the best of it by drinking a whole lot of lemonade and by praying daily for peace, patience and understanding; after all, we woke up like this!
