It has been such a cold and rainy weekend here in Southern California. Our usual sunny 70 - 80 degree days have been replaced with 40's - 50's and lots of blustery wind.
Luckily, I took a few pictures of the back garden last week just in case the days ahead would be too gray to take decent photos.
I was lucky enough to find three six packs of foxglove at our local nursery so that means 18 new spires will be blooming this summer. I love finding them small and waiting for their towers to make a show rather than buying them big and already in bloom with nothing to look forward to until next year.
Hopefully the sun will shine this week and I can show you the progress I'm making in bringing color to the front porch furniture and you can help me decide on a color to paint the front door.
If you have sun where you are, can you send a little west? Now if you'll excuse me, I think I'll go make me a big mug of hot chocolate, sit by the fire and wait for Spring to return.
