I know a lot of you are looking forward to spring. Here in the Houston area we have two seasons...a little bit of winter and then a long hot and humid summer. Summer has arrived and I had forgotten how much I dislike the heat and humidity.
This past winter was wonderful! The coldest and longest winter that I can recall in 30+ years of living in this area. We actually had a few frosts and for the first time in many years I lost some of my tropical plants. I kept moving them into the garage whenever they predicted a frost, but one time I didn't and that was all it took.
This is a picture of Reid arriving home. You can see one of my fig trees that didn't make it. (I'm not sure of the real name, but I call them fig trees for short.) I had that tree since 1990.
The next few days are supposed to be cooler (not in the 90's) and I need to get outside and finish organizing the garage. We have a three car garage and still can't get a car inside it!
