Ho, Ho, Ho Hum

Despite singing Christmas carols nearly continuously (they run through my head nearly year-long anyway), I have not yet gotten into the holiday spirit.  It may be the weather, which has been decidedly spring-like.  I even saw primrose and rhododendron blooming & the allium bulbs I put in actually sprouted.

It's alive!

The reason my outdoor plants survive and my indoor ones don't?  Rain.

However, beyond my wildest hopes, the gardenia is alive and thriving in the front window thanks to the weekly watering my husband gives it.
