It's a blooming Sunday

Great blue Lobelia (Lobelia Siphilitica)

The rush is over now, and another one is about to start. We call new years eve "old years night" in the Caribbean. Many people go out and celebrate, some have house fetes (parties), some just go to bed like any other night and I have done that many times. My daughter will be going out of course with her friends, in fact she has been out almost every night since she has been here with my car. Good thing I have no big social life or else we would have been fighting over MY car lol. My stove of twelve years sprung two holes in the oven and had to go out and buy a new one the day before Christmas eve. I didn't even get a discount, now I see in the papers this morning there is a sale on. I feel sick or mad? I think mad is more appropriate. Well we bajans will say cat luck ain't dog luck. I am toying with the idea of hosting a New Years morning brunch, I will sleep on it and then decide.

  5. Helen, Your header photo is more than perfect for this blog. It is just as I imagine your island life to be. Just beautiful! Love all your blooms. A very special thank you for the help on the ID on my post about the pink firespike. I honestly never even knew there was such a thing. I've linked back to your blog in an update. I'm so glad to have met you this year and I also wish you a very happy and healthy New Year. A breakfast brunch sounds yummy.

  6. Thanks Meems,
    I decided to try and jazz up my blog after seeing how lovely yours always look. I have been a bit lazy but was waiting on the inspiration. Your blog gave that to me. Thanks!

  8. Thank you Cameron and a Happy New year to you and your family.

  9. Hello ! I discover your blog thanks to Nathalie... and try to answer (so late, sorry) your question about spirea japonica, on the 2nd photo. It doesn't look like the spirea I know, but i'm not sure... I thought it could be a verbena but no. If you had more photos, for more details or general view, i'm sure that some garden specialists would play and find the name very fast ! (tell me, if you want, and i put a link on our blog). And happy new "gardenistic" year ! (very sorry about my poor english...!)
