I am actually thinking of moving or buying another home in Georgia close to my mother in the next few years. Is that what happens when you turn fifty? When I told my daughter she said, "but you hate Georgia, you hate the heat, you love snow." Things change, I am ready for solitude, peace, tall pine trees, a slower pace. I am blooming where I'm planted but I am seriously thinking of what I need to do to make this possible soon.
I had a before the birthday houseplant shopping spree and bought several houseplants. I bought a peace Lilly in full bloom, 2 split leaf philodendrons, and another plant. I'm not sure of its name but it's a real common plant. I hope they make it until Spring, early preparation for Fall and Winter, something to look at green while I am house bound from the cold and snow! Well I will post some old pictures starting with a view from my bathroom window last Fall. I look forward to seeing the leaves turn color soon.

|The yard, lots to rake up.|
|Common name Mexican sunflower. I grew this from seed. It grew real tall over 5 feet. The bees loved them.|
|Isn't the bee beautiful?|
|Aren't the colors beautiful? This was from the flower bed in my yard 3 years ago. This was my first attempt at gardening in the yard.|
|Coleus that I grew from seeds, caladium, impatiens, huchera, hyacinth bean vine, gerbera daisy, and sedum.|
|I made this planter. Sure saved me some money from ordering one. What one can do with some plywood and screws! The next time I make one I would like a better type of wood like cedar which is hard to find.|
|This was the 2nd brown planter I now have outside in the front of the house.|
|I love cut flowers. If only I could grow my own.|
|Aren't they beautiful.|
|Sunflowers are spectacular. The center looks like an eye.|
|No arrangement complete without Christmas.|
|Spring bulbs on my porch from this past Spring.|
|Some seedlings from last Spring. Of course pansies to go out.|
