The other day, I took all my potting things off this potting bench. I’ve had it for years and brought it with me from Texas.
The wood had faded in the sunlight. So I painted it white and brought it indoors.
I’ll let you know what it is going to be used for soon.
Last night we had a pretty hard freeze. This photo I took a day or so ago is probably the last of the flowers until springtime.
I looked out the window this morning and saw that the six foot tall cannas, standing so thick everywhere I transplanted them, look beaten and brown. It is sad to look at them.
It seems that winter has arrived. I’ll need to do some clean up and maintenance out in the yard and gardens to ready things for the next season.
I will now be focusing my attention on the indoor plants. I’m glad when the gardening season is over that I can then turn my attention to my house plants for a bit of nature to get me through the winter months.
But at some point when it’s warmer outside I’ll have to go out and cut back the drooping cannas on the side of the house by the driveway. As they are now, I’ll brush past them with my car as I pull into the driveway.
I love cobalt blue. I often choose this shade of blue because it is so vibrant and pretty.
I also love the combination of blue and white, as seen above in the teacup and saucer.
I captured a photo of the beautiful male cardinal the other day. He is so pretty in his coat of red. The female cardinal is never far behind. When I see the male arrive I know she will show up soon.
I’m off to the kitchen to have my coffee now. I need to warm my hands around my coffee mug and figure out what I need to get done today. Stay warm!
