More Photos Of My Porch & Garden

Hello and Good Afternoon Friends

                                                     click on Pics to enlarge
Did you enjoy our photos from yesterday's post? I mentioned I didn't want to post too many at once...(I think I might have gone overboard taking them). So, I'll keep posting until I'm done.
 These are the pics that I really want you to see! Remember the Azalea I rescued from the plumber in back of the house? 
Well, this is it...yes, it lives, even bloomed this far into the year! Imagine my surprise when I came onto the porch and saw the buds on it!

It wasn't long after that that blooms like these above, were showing all their beauty. I am so thankful to God for it.

I took some clippings from the ground cover that was taking over the low-wall on the west side of the property and re-planted it in this pot. It lives also!

My huge spider plant that grows in a back bed needed to be divided, so I put this one in a pot and it seems to be doing just as well as all the other plants. I really have been blessed with them all!

  This pic  above shows these plants on the porch. You notice the landscape timber on the porch? That's Miss Kitty's scratching keeps her from the wicker and cushions. 
Hey, it works!
  I'm sitting here with the heat on in the house...can you believe it? The temp dropped today and will continue to do so. Weather report stated we will have a record low in the 30's, some with frost Saturday morning! 
  Rain is gone but high wind from the north and low temps will remain. I know there are some of us experiencing unusual weather... there isn't anything we can do about it, so don't grumble... just endure it...after all, that's all we can do!
  Gotta run now, hey ya'll be good to one another and love your neighbors... Hope you have a nice weekend whatever you plan to do!  Thank ya'll for taking care of my Girl for me...told you you were some good people!!

Hold down the fort for me now,
James & Loretta
