Thank you! I especially love the colors of the Echeverias.

Since it is raining and miserable outside, I thought I'd come in an catch up with some recent pictures.

But first...YIKES! The rain is from a Tropical Storm, and it isn't even officially Hurricane Season yet. We may be in for a long, wet and windy summer here in Florida!

Nice and homey pics. I bet your yard overall is so beautiful. I wish we were getting rain here in southern Louisiana. We need it. So hot and dry. Im hoping some of that tropical disturbance comes our way....the rain part though.
