Some color and sunshine for you

Good morning friends. No commentary this morning as I've got to get ready to head off to work. Hope your day is a good one whatever you are doing. It is chilly here today and is supposed to get down to 38 tonight. Brrr. Guess I better bring the few orchids I have back inside.

Zone 10 ~ s.e. FL

Very pretty...we are going to have 'raw' weather here in North Florida for the rest of the week and weekend...I have been carrying plants in and out in and out...

Tatyana@MySecretGarden said...

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! And I love your bench too!

Becca's Dirt said...

Love your warmer days photos. Have a good day.

Hi Flowerlady...I found you over at Hoe&Shovel. I'm always in search of other Florida garden bloggers, and will include you on the sidebar for my two blogs. Your roses are beautiful. I'm not familiar with the 2nd flower from the that some type of salvia or sage? Your blog has a very relaxed feel, and I look forward to visiting again.

Lovely pictures. Thank you for sharing this beauty with us.

Oh, how I would like to be setting out in the sunshine and warmth on your bench. All those pretty roses were needed today to chase away the cold and snow outside. :-)

Catherine@AGardenerinProgress said...

Thanks for sharing all those pretty flowers! Hope you had a great day :)

Hope it doesn't get too cold down there! You have such pretty blooms.

Wind chill today 13 degrees and 50mph winds. Cold. But, the sun is shining.

Thank you for sharing your garden, I planted seeds today, time to start over for us northern gardeners.

We won't have flowers such as these for at least two more months. Your roses look heavenly. I love the atmosphere in the first shot, and the mosaic bench.

Take a seat right there. It's 34 here, down into the low 20s tonight, again.

Good morning everyone. Thank you all for visiting and your kind comments. I greatly appreciate your taking the time.

Darla ~ I took in a couple of orchids last night. It only got down to 41 here, not as cold as you got I'm sure. I hope your gardens survive.

Tatyana ~ We found two benches like that many years ago. One is falling apart. We have found a lot of different concrete pieces curbside shopping over the years down here.

Becca ~ Our warmer days have turned chilly once again. :-)

Susan ~ Thank you for visiting from Hoe and Shovel. It is nice to find some other FL gardeners. The flower you are interested in is Blue Sage, eranthemum. I just did a posting on it earlier this morning so you can have the info on it.

Jenny ~ Thanks glad you enjoyed.

Hocking Hills Gardener ~ Glad to have chased away some of your snow and cold.

Catherine ~ You all are welcome for the shots of flowers from our gardens especially in the winter.

Cameron ~ Your temps sound awful. We have been down here way too long and those temps would be hard to take.

Jenny ~ I planted some seeds a week or two ago, and some have sprouted. I'm still watching the rest. Hope your seeds all sprout and grow for you.

SweetBay ~ Two more months to wait. No wonder you all start chomping at the bit. Sheesh. That bench was another 'freebie' from curbside shopping. We are getting too old to be picking up that kind of stuff any more though. We got this years and years ago.

Tom ~ I sure don't envy you your weather right now. Hope everything survives this latest onslaught of cold weather.

Have a great day everyone ~ FlowerLady

A record cold winter, they're saying. I'm ready to move past freezing temps.

Can't imagine roses blooming right now. Can't imagine freezing temps in Florida, either.

tina said...

I love that bench. I hope your orchids made it thru the cold. Its brrrr here too.

FlowerLady said...

Nell Jean ~ I'd be ready for warmer weather if I lived where you do too. Roses love this weather down here and all are doing great.

Tina ~ The bench was one of our curbside finds many, many years ago.

Have a great day and I hope it warms up for both of you soon.
