Front yard flowers: The lilac coloured ‘star-flower’ is from last year. I thought it was an annual, but seems to be a perennial. The red geranium and the yet to flower jasmine plant on my front porch are both from 2009. They have survived two winters and my two international trips in 2010. They looked so dead in the winters but once I brought them out they seem very happy to romance the sun. Thank God for small mercies!
in case you are wondering, the last picture is of a squirrel standing up on the solar light to help himself of the bird-feeder….
