Winter Flowers In Sunshine State

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I took a break from all the holiday hustle and bustle. I walked around my garden today to see what survived the cold temperature. I had not been in my garden for a while. I was shopping, decorating, baking, and doing all the holiday related errands. I was surprised to find that a few of my flowering plants are still blooming. It was a spiritually uplifting  experience.  I am glad I took some time to smell the flowers for they will all be gone soon.

I know people were trying to view this entry while I was trying to upload pictures. I had very funny e-mails and some very funny comments about the "very large picture."  Yes, guys, I was trying several ways to upload pics but some of the results were hilarious. I tried using the digital camera's program to cut and paste and I got these grainy humongous pictures. I tried another program and I got these almost grotesque pictures. Oh well, you guys just have to be patient with me sometimes. LOL. Haylee, I thought myself that that entry was mind blowing! I had pictures gone wild! Barb, it's OK, you were not hallucinating. It was my pics that were on acid. LOL. Just remember, I am not laughing AT you, I am laughing WITH you! I had so much fun experimenting with ways on how to put pics on this entry. As you can see, I ended up with the AOL issue. There's always a next time. And next time, I will succeed.   

Happy Holidays To Everyone!

Oh, I see the picture now. When I put my comment, I couldn't see the picture and it looked like an empty entry...sorry.
That is a really nice picture, I love those (I can't think of the name of them) things.

<g> I knew that there would be more to this entry than the one large picture! I just made the page small and kept coming back periodically and reloading the page! Wow, considering the cold weather you still have several things trying to bloom. I love the thing with the big blue ball... I can never remember the name of them, but I was telling G not long ago I wanted one when we get a house. They are so pretty.

You are reminding me of when I first tried out my digital camera!  Uploading pictures was hysterical!  Then I was told about the resizing edit option of the software program that accompanys the digital camera.  LOL...as you know, I have not stopped since!
