My new year wishes

As the year 2009 comes to an end, I am reflecting how it has changed me as a person. As I look towards 2010 I can say that I am more aware of life and that we do not have tomorrow packaged.
I am more aware of how difficult it is to change one's perception about people and things. Before the information highway was opened, we all lived in our own small worlds. Now that world has become connected and I realize that we are more alike than we are different. Many of us face the same challenges in our day to day existence, many of us share the same hopes and dreams.
Often I wonder if I can make a difference, by doing instead of talking, by giving instead of thinking. At times, I can be described the world's greatest procrastinator and it is indeed the thief of time. Time passes very quickly and before we know it is too late. So my resolution for 2010 is to just do it!

My wish for the world....... may there be some peaceful resolution to the conflicts that seem to be engulfing nations. May we all see each other as family that spans the globe ignoring race, creed and station in life. May we throw out all prejudices and start with a blank page. Who knows what tomorrow will bring?........Just do it!

Wishing a happy and healthy 2010 to all !

Seasons Greetings

This euphorbia is locally called snow on the mountain and it only flowers at Christmas time.

The poinsettia whose humble roots began Mexico, is now a symbolic plant at Christmas

I was passing through the famous Sandy Lane Estates where I couldn't help admire this display and gardens.
Christmas is now upon us and everyone is dashing and dancing, and also shopping for the last minute presents and food. My kitchen is not finished however I am not going to loose any sleep over that. I will now take this opportunity to wish everyone a safe and peaceful Christmas and a healthy and brighter 2010.

Yikes it a bloomin' Friday

My hibiscus hedge at the front consists of red, cream with a red throat and pink with a red throat (not shown). However I am now seeing variations or mutations of the red and cream on the red plants. They are quite beautiful and I wonder if this is normal? For more blooming Friday please skip over to Katerina at roses and stuff . Have a great weekend folks!
