It's Been So Long !
I cannot believe I have been away from my blog for so long. Summer has faded and we are enjoying a cool fall on the Texas coast. Little "Sport" and "Tibadeaux" are wearing sweaters since I trimmed their coats short.
I am feeling much better since I found a RA Doctor in Corpus Christi. She was able to diagnose me after a few minuets of my telling her my symptoms. I am on medication and sleeping much better. I am regaining my strength and am looking forward to going up to San Antonio to see my daughter and her beautiful family for Thanksgiving.
I am sharing with you photo's of a plant I grew from seed. It is now as tall as me, with such beautiful and exotic orange flowers. The original plant grew in my neighbors yard. One day on a trip to the mail box...I noticed the green seed pods had turned brown and were splitting open. I gathered a good two handfuls of pods and let the sit in a envelope until I planted them last spring. I am constantly amazed at how easy it is to grow things in Texas.
Have a great day !
