When we arrived home on 9/11/11 to see our flooded neighborhood for the first time (we were out of town when the floods hit) I was thrilled to see our front yard had been spared.
Here are our flowers, still in bloom. I am going to feature these on the Garden Bloggers Bloom Day on 9/15 even though the pictures were not taken on that day.
Our yellow flowered bleeding heart is still in bloom too.
Our avocado "tree" (started from a pit several years ago and not always happily residing in a pot) was very happy, as was our poinsettia plant from last Christmas.
It's going to be a hard haul for a lot of people in our community - but we still have flowers.
