How we do ‘winter’ here

We plant flowers and vegetables. No kidding. Last week, I planted impatiens, which I used to grow in an enormous pot outside my apartment in Texas all winter long and I inter-planted them with swiss chard, my new favorite green leafy vegetable.

I planted them around this lovely camellia tree I found on sale.

Wow oh wow are the geraniums doing well. Everything here BLOOMS in the ‘winter’ because it’s cooler and rainy and they just love it. Such a funny place to live.
