I was walking past my bougainvillea, which if you casually looked at it, most of its leaves are gone except for a green leaf here and there, but out of the corner of my eye, low down at the bottom branch was an adorable tiny bloom. I immediately cried out, my husband said “what, what” as I was running for my iPhone to capture it and write about it. I showed him the tiny blossom and he laughed saying “go write about it.”

I tell you, it doesn’t take much to make me happy and excited, a hibiscus bloom, my blooming impatiens and this tiny adorable bougainvillea bloom and even though it is a very cold 20 degrees outside, I am surrounded by signs of life in traditionally tender annuals. This most definitely helps stave the winter doldrums; my plants are so good to me. 🙂
