Friday Flowerblogging


Pretty white vincas with red centers and green foliage. They look like Christmas colors but bloom in the summer. This photo was taken by Ted.

I finished decorating the tree this morning and got a third of my Christmas Cards done. Still have a little more decorating to do as the livingroom is sparcely decorated and doesn't look like Christmas. Of course, the stockings are hung. Santa will be putting a few things in Danny's stocking and I got some books at the library sale that will fill up my stocking.

Hi Karol, When I clicked on the blog and saw the beautiful vincas, I thought to myself - if you can make those flowers bloom like this during the winter, - you must REALLY have a green thumb. They were a pleasant sight to see during December. And, you're right, the colors are gorgeous during the Christmas season.

I think its pretty neat that Danny has a Christmas stocking and will get some treats. And, I think its pretty great that you'll even have some "surprises" in yours. It's really nice that you're decorating your house and enjoying this blessed season. It would be fun to see your skating scene that you put around your tree. If you get a picture of it, maybe you could post it on the blog.

I'm doing some baking this year for Christmas gifts. But, in doing this, I don't know that I can get my Christmas cards done. I want to spend quite a bit of time with my granddaughter that has been so ill. Although she's home, she is still not doing real well.

I'm so proud of you for taking care of so many things. I'm thankful for your strength and your persistence in keeping on - keeping on. I send my very best to you as always. Ruth

I'm afraid the vincas are gone for the winter. The photo was taken by Ted several years ago. The vincas do reseed themselves so will be back next summer. I still have some mums blooming even thought it's been in the 20's.
