Back home from the frozen tundra of NY.


White Begonia

Yesterday I returned from my business trip to New York City where the weather was in the mid 20’s and the windshield factor in the single digits.
When you live in Florida is always good to take a quick trip up North in the winter so we can appreciate how good we have here and we should stop complaining about the rain and the heat in the summer.
When you are away from your garden for a few days, you find surprises when you return. Like, my wonderful family forgot to water my hanging baskets for four days, the dog knock down one of my pots running after cats and no one bother to pick it up but on the bright side some of my plants flowered while I was away.

Here are some of the pictures.

Update on my Starburst shrub.

Glad you made it back from the frozen north. Now you will enjoy your own weather more. LOL
