i heart containers

I found this treasure at my local nursery, an aged wooden box with a chalkboard front. Sitting inside is a succulent called a lotus vine, or "Parrot's Beak." This plant flowers all summer and are most unusual looking. With bright orange, yellow and red, it really does look like a bird beak. I can't wait for it to bloom and you know I'll post it here ;)

Our Uncle Richard and hubby's Mom are in Australia right now for a 6 week vacation. The post cards are coming and it sounds like they're having a great time. While we are swooning with 70-80 degree weather, they are freezing down under. They are being spoiled by the folks there and eating yummy foods. Some day I'll go too...

You and Angela have such a talent for finding treasures....

Love your box and the postcards look like they are having a marvelous time.

Our vacation to Tahoe this year was one of the best we've ever had.

Loving you today, my darling D.
