My DD called late yesterday morning and we went out to lunch over on the beach side at the little hut place that we stopped at when I got  here for vacation in May--
and we shared the rice, black beans and pulled pork dish--it is really large enough for 2!!
then we went grocery shopping and she brought me on home--

a couple hours later the phone rang--
and DD was on the other end and said she was in the parking lot and for me to come down--
being the dutiful Mother that I am--I went down and here is what she got--
a red Christmas cactus--
the cactus had been on my 'want' list for a couple months now--
I have never had one before and when shopping last week it was mentioned and DD said she was wanting one too--which surprised me as she is not into plants!!
She ended up having to drive to Cocoa to pick up a pay check and she stopped at the Rockledge Gardens on the way home and found these for us and then she seen the poinsettia's too-- and the lady said there that this was the first year that they had gotten that color in and only got a couple of them--like maybe 8--well--DD said they now only have 6!!!
Here is a map of the east coast of Florida--I am about mid state--
and if you look to the right of the #4 dot you will see a X that is about where I am!!
There is an Air Force base across the river from here too--so I hear alot of planes flying over me!!
Smiles, di


  1. It sounds like you are enjoying being near your DD, Di. What a lovely day!

  2. Sew nice to go out with your DD. and she bought you two beautiful plants.

  3. Is there a lovelier gift than a plant? I don't think so. Unless it's another plant! ;)


I love visitor's---and I really love to read your comments--sooo don't forget to leave me one!!!!:-)
