With all the rain we've been getting I ventured outside between showers to see what was blooming. I walked to the back yard and nothing...same old flowers I had posted last week (or the week before?), I walked to the butterfly garden and all that was blooming was my pentas. Okay by then I am a bit discouraged that I am not going to have anything for "Flaunt Your Flowers Fertilizer Friday" so I walk to the side  garden and what do you know!!!! My red plumbago is blooming...this does not happen often for me but I guess with the cooler weather, the rains and lots of oak leaves as compost it must feel the need to show its beauty!!! I am doing the happy dance here...the second picture is my red plumbago. The other blooming lovelies are a red hibiscus, ti plant and criniums. Wander over to Tootsies and check out all the flowers for show.     Merry Christmas....
