The lantana is flowering! I hope our night-time temperatures don't dip too low to cause any frost damage.
|Aloe Flower Stalks|
The aloe plants all have flower stalks. It will be awhile before the flowers actually open up. In the meantime, they look a bit like antennae, don't they?
|African Daisy Seedlings|
The African daisies have self-seeded and the little seedlings are starting to grow. I will leave the old dead stems in place for a few more weeks, as they provide a bit of cover for the seedlings.
The climbing rose seems to think it is summer, again!
And the purple African daisies and dusty miller growing at the base of the climbing rose are doing well, too:

Yes, it was a sunny day and the afternoon was warm. I walked a bit, up and down my block, and enjoyed the sunshine and the fresh air. Visited two of my neighbors, as well.
But, other than that, I wasn't too productive. I slept in as I felt tired; had half a roast beef sandwich for brunch because I didn't feel like eating the other half, read blogs, checked the lights on the Christmas tree (they work), called my friend who is hosting this month's rosary prayer meeting tomorrow and made my apologies for not being able to attend (just don't feel up to making the long drive there and back), and just took it easy. Haven't accomplished anything on my To Do list for today, although I will make myself put away the laundry, at least.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Being able to sleep in
- Sunshine and pleasant weather
- The garden is doing well
- A little bit of a walk this afternoon
- Visiting two of my neighbors
How was your Saturday? Hope it was more productive than mine!
