  2. I'm amazed at the number and variety of blooms in your winter garden. Mine is all frozen and brown, lol. I hope you have a wonderful New Year's celebration and I look forward to reading more of your blog in the coming year.

  3. Your garden is beautiful! I love your new lantern!

  4. Happy new year Ami! Love your snow pics and your December garden is beautiful as ever.

  5. Happy New Year, Ami! Love the pics of Vermont, but love your blooms more! So many beautiful colors.

  6. Enjoyed looking at your broms.
    I'm still going crazy hunting broms around as they seemed to be rare nowadays in the nurseries
    Guess they are not so easily available or must be expensive.
    Your matchstick brom is beautiful - I haven't seen them around in my region.

  7. Your winter garden was stunning! So much in bloom, where my garden was brown, brown, brown :-(

    I just realized I haven't seen you blog for a while. I hope everything is well with you and look forward to reading your blog posts again.

  8. Wow, love your garden. The double layered desert rose and the iceberg rose is really an attraction. So pretty.

  9. I love growing in south Florida. It is much different than when I lived in California but just as fun.

    we have just started a small south Florida community and we'd love to have to stop by and join us!
