A New Pansy

I wish I could say I plant lots of pansies for the winter, but the truth is I don't. So, therefore my flower beds look pretty barren thru the season.

But I did want to show you a pansy that we sold at the nursery this fall.Say hello to Kharma Blue.Oh be still my beating heart! Is she a beauty or what?!?!!? She's a little darker than the Crown Blue pansy. Even tho the pic looks more purple, she really is a dark blue.As I said I didn't plant much this fall but I did put her in a couple of my pots. Couldn't help myself.

Without a doubt, she's my fav for the season.

Let it Snow

Last night we had a 40% chance of snow and it Mr. Weather didn't let us down.It started snowing around 9:00 in our area. It was so pretty when it started coming down. It was so quiet outside and it was like you could almost hear it falling. So peaceful.A snow angel?!?!?Hubbie and I got up at 6:30 this a.m. to capture some more pics. It looked like winter wonderland. I know northerners, this is nothing, but to we southerners, we'll take anything we can get!!One of my knock out roses didn't look too happy.My Miscanthus looks pretty snow-kissed.The Tea Olive didn't seem to mind it too much. It was just a light dusting but we still enjoyed it much. Mr. Sun is now shining so it won't be around much longer.

A Recent Road Trip

Yes, we were at it again for Thanksgiving. This time our travels took us to.......drum roll please.The big state of Oklahoma! We decided to go visit my brother and his wife in Tulsa. This was a first for both of us. They've been wanting us to come and so this was the perfect opportunity. My mom was there too so we got to eat some of her yummy dressing. Trust me, it's the best in the world!Here she is whipping up some of her magic! My brother giving his approval after a taste test.While we were there my hubbie read on the internet about the space station and space shuttle would be passing over. So we bundled up and headed out. Sure enough, about 7:00 p.m. we saw them both. It was interesting to see. I tried to capture some pics but my camera isn't that good.

On Friday we got out and they showed us around. We took a drive to Claremore, Ok which was home to Will Rogers. Then we took a drive out on Route 66 to get our kicks.(you have to be a certain age to get that)! hehe! Lots of history there.Then they drove us by Oral Roberts University. I just had to have a pic of these praying hands. The statue was beautiful as well as the school campus. Supposedly the base of the main building is to be the exact size of Noah's ark.

All in all, we had a wonderful time. Tulsa is a nice place for sure.

We returned home on Saturday after driving 617 miles in one day. I'm way too old to do that! I don't think I have gotten my energy back yet!
