Florida winter....

While it's true, we don't get this in Florida.....



If it gets below freezing and you let your sprinklers come on you get this.....


We get ice on our bushes!!!!  In just a couple of months there will be gorgeous azaleas on this bush....but for a day there were icicles! 

We don't get to make snowmen or shovel driveways or scrape windshields, but for a few precious days, we get to wear sweaters!  With scarves!  

Presently in Florida, at least where I live, we having showers of oak leaves after the rain and wind.  We don't shovel them but we do have to rake them......OR if you're lazy and I'm not naming any names...me....you can get your lawnmower out and go over your yard.  It doesn't work for the pool.  I'm not thinking about that right now!  

 &&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

In other exciting news, Hubby and I are both sick with the common cold...


Ever noticed that when it is YOU with the cold, it doesn't seem so common??


&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&


I'm reading the Bible in 90 days with this group  and I'm keeping up which I had my doubts about at first!  I'm praying I can keep up and finish with the group!  


&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&


O.K. gotta go take my temperature......so have a great day!!!

The ice on the bush is funny - - - funny AND pretty.

Yah, I wonder why we DO call it a common cold. And why a cold? I usually get a fever - - - so I'm gonna call it an uncommon HOT.

I'm sorry you have a cold...it really can make you feel very yucky! Nothing common about it!

Congrats on your 5 bloggy years! Amazing how the time goes by, isn't it? Well, I love reading your blog and keeping up with your life. And, so glad we had our one meeting in a parking Lot!!!

Feel better, soon!

So sorry you both have colds.
I do like the way the lawn mower works for getting the leaves up.
Like you said, the pool is a whole other story! Love the icicle bush.

Sorry you're sick. Yucky colds - I hate them.

We've had the same thing happen with the bushes and the sprinkling system = looks beautiful.

HI!!!!
Now I am wondering when we had those few rare days where are cold was low as 18, if I too had icicles on our plants that got sprinkled on from our sprinkler system!!!!!
I know our fountain's water was frozen!!!
Hope you are feeling better, nothing common about the common cold!!!!
Hugs,
