I know, most of you are soaking in the last days of Summer warmth, beach time, fresh air and thinking about fall clothes and firewood being stored. But down here, it has been very cold and too wet and I am ready for warmth.. green things.. Spring.
A sure sign is the bird behavior going on around here. Parrots in trees outside the window, that sort of thing. But I want to see flowers and I want to sit outside without wearing 4 layers of clothes and boots and gloves.
So I turn to the magazines where I can look at what I am missing. A bit of green, some branches getting ready to blossom ..
Topiary and Potted Palms and flowers galore
