WARMING UP YOUR DAY

This is one of our favorite ground covers in the backyard. It blooms in the summer but is at its best all winter long. (I would show snow pictures if I had some) I do love living in Southern California and just so you know I lived in a suburb of Chicago for the first 38 years of my life so I do know snow and cold weather! Where we are now we can be in Las Vegas in 3 1/2 hours, in the mountains in about 45 minutes (with snow for skiing) and at the beach in an hour.
Yet here I sit at my computer each day!

I moved right by Lake Michigan 10 years ago and in all those 10 years, I haven't been to the beach once. I take it for granted completely.

We're going through our January thaw right now, but it's still only in the mid 30's. Your picture is very warming! It's reminding me of the warm summer days that will be here before I know it. Thank you! :-)

These are beautiful, Debby! What are they? I wonder if they will grow in Mississippi. I would love to have those on our hillside. Lucky you for living in a beautiful place!...Christine

very pretty. It's always easier to say you could go than actually going, isn't it?

I'm sitting by my fireplace...reading your blog....trying not to feel jealousy!

Purple is my favorite color :) and although I don't need any warming up (it finally got warmer here in FL) I absolutely enjoy the beautiful flowers. Thank you!

I've lived in California my whole life. I've been kind of spoiled with the beautiful weather we get...

Happy Friday, enjoy your weekend!

You live in an ideal location...but it takes me 6 hours to be to the beach in San Diego.
