A Spot of Color


There are only a couple of things blooming in my garden right now.  The weather has become too cold for most things here in this part of Texas.


A little pot of English daisy's. 


When I saw it down at Feed Barn I just couldn't resist them.


Aren't they sweet?


I also have a pot of these little johnny jump ups.  they are one of my favorite flowers.  Both of these little pots are on my front step.  It is so nice to step out and see a beautiful spot of color during the long winter months.  They are so easy to care for too.  I only need to give them a bit of water from time to time and if it looks like it may get too cold for them (which is rare here), then I can just pick them up and bring them in till it warms again.  That is one of the benefits of living in Texas.  I do hope we get some snow soon though.  Sigh....... it has been pretty warm lately for this time of year.  Maybe for Christmas...


Many blessings and a very Merry Christmas to you!
Until Next Time
