Evelyn Drake from McConnell, Illinois shares a combination of photos with us from early spring, indoors, the height of summer and a touch of winter...which, unfortunately looks like its going to continue to stick around over the next week or so with a signifanct snowfall predicted here in CT for tomorrow. Spring can't come soon enough...I hope those crocuses that are peeking through survive!

Lilith tree peony.

Sure hope this one rewards me with flowrs again this year!

Night blooming cereus. Not the nicest looking foliage, and it really gets out of hand.  Just when you think you should get rid of it this magnificent flower shows up.

Bottlebrush buckeye

A gift from my daughter, this succulent wreath made a great centerpiece. It's now looking tired of the snow.

Phalenopsis are always a welcome shot of color!

Wish I knew what this purple bloomer was!

Fern leaf peony. One of my favorite perennials to bloom each year.

I really enjoy my chimney pot and try different plants each year. The succulents were great and are overwintering for another show. (can't come too soon for me!)

The sky on fire this winter.
