OK, so while we are thinking about the above picture, do any of you ladies out there ever remember having to wear such things? I have no idea when they went out of style, but I sure don't remember any women or girls wearing them, but then, I didn't check to see because I don't like being slapped. . .
I walked out on the back porch this morning and noticed that this one plant was still blooming. It blooms constantly. I hope it enjoyed the cool front that came through. At least it didn't seem to bother it.
Here is a close up. Now ain't they purrrety??
We haven't had a cold winter here for a long time. Who knows, maybe this will be the year for a real winter. What would I call a real winter here? Well, maybe a few mornings of frost. If you have ever spent any winters up north, the one big difference that you notice about winters down here is that the sun is always hot. If you can get out of any cold wind, you can sunbathe and not be cold. Another thing you notice is that it stays light longer in the winter evenings in the south than it does in the north but the days are shorter down here in the summer than they are up there in the north country. If fact, if you go as far north as you can (the north pole), the sun doesn't set in the summer but barely comes above the horizon in the winter.
Now, you all take time to smell the posies and have a great day, you hear?
