Sorry it has been so long since I've posted. I've been busy with all the things that keep us busy at this time of year: Shopping, cleaning and decorating the house, visiting family. Time just really got away from me. And it appears, so did my garden. It has contracted a terrible case of the Uglies. Typically, December comes around and I just try to forget the garden even exists. In Florida, I don't get the nice fresh blanket of white snow, wiping the slate clean. Instead, plants linger around a bit, little bits of life in amongst the decay.This blog has made me stick with the garden this year, or least venture out into it once a week. That has been one of the benefits. Usually I avoid the uglies and try to focus on the beautiful things. But this week the uglies were just overwelming and the beautiful things were far and few between. So I decided to photograph the uglies just like they were the beautiful things.
And the became beautiful, in their own way.
