    1. I wonder if Cali is too hot for them? They are here early spring and the the whole plant is done and dies off in the summer.

  6. So delicate and lovely. We had them growing in Santa Barbara years ago...the climate there loved flowers. We had huge double poinsettias as high as the church. Wish I has a picture of them. We cut them at Christmas and the stems were so big we had to put them in boiling water or all the milk would come out. That sealed them, and they looked beautiful in the church almost reaching the ceiling.

    1. My goodness! I've never heard of a poinsettia like that! Must have been gorgeous! I almost asked how it could have survived at Christmas....haha....your Christmases are warmer than ours!

    2. Wow, Wanda - I had never heard of that before. I googled it and in this photo they are nine feet tall! And she lives in Santa Barbara.

    1. It's funny to think that we are ahead of anyone, but it is true we are further south that you! ha.
      I planted my daffodils this spring, so I still have some of them to look forward to...and the violets are still going strong!

      when the flakes fell so lovely and dear?
      Oh wait, that would have been me.

      But not so bad since it doesn't stick enough to cause a fit

  10. B.E.A.utiful! Love looking at your flowers and such. Know why? You take close-ups. My fav! I found a peony at the lake. Can't wait til it blooms. I'll definitely take a close-up. Toodles!

    1. Yeah, close-ups are cool. I got a new macro lens that makes it really fun! I had a couple of cats that were so excited I was outside that they kept trying to jump on me while I took photos...SO many were blurry because I was crouching down and they were throwing me off balance. Crazy! lol.... Can't wait to see your peony.....what a fun surprise to find at the lake!

  11. Simply perfection.
    I must look into checking if these plants are deer proof, or a chosen tidbit.
    Magical shot.
