Wordless Wednesday

Last Friday I talked about the squirrels nest up high in the tree and the coming cold weather.

On Saturday we had 8″ of snow.  And while a storm like that isn’t particularly ridiculous for us, it hasn’t happened in the last 8 years (perhaps more–my current garden journal only goes back that far).

More snow was possible on 2 separate occasions this week.  It appears the squirrels are correct.

Wordless Wednesday–Beach Vacation

Just so you didn’t think I spent my entire vacation at the library! These photos are from a nature walk we took. This was in front of a store just before the trail head.

This is the lighthouse, Barnegat Lighthouse, or Ol’ Barney, in the state park. It is decommissioned.

And here is just one view from the walk. It was a glorious–and very warm day, in the 90s.  But it was still a lovely walk!

Wordless Wednesday–The Promise of Summer

I bought this plant in flower in February 2016. It was spectacular.

But as with any tropical plant– and my less than tropical-like home–I always wonder if I will be able to recreate the conditions it needs to re-bloom.

Happily in the case of this medinilla magnifica, I did manage to do something right. By summer,  this is what the flower should look like. 20160827_081202

Let’s hope this works!
