Our Silver Trumpet Tree is blooming and the flowers are showering our yard as the wind blows. It's really very pretty (as long as you can get past the cleanup of wilted brown flowers in a few weeks and then the brown pods a few weeks after that!). I think it's worth it, and such a pretty site to see when I come home from work!

Our mailbox got a few new plants around it as well.

The flowering plant we had next to the carport had seen better days so we fished it out and replaced it with a gardenia variety bush.

I am a fan of loose leaf tea but for some reason have drifted away from drinking hot tea. (Perhaps it was the need for more caffeine in the lattes I make...) Brady has just recently reminded me of my fondness for tea though- He has given me some flower tea. The tea comes compact, in a ball. When steeped, the leaves unfurl to product a flower. (It's man made, of course.) I think I'll be making a trip to the loose leaf tea shop around the corner from my house - Old Cup and Saucer

2. Our trip to Indiana was great -a little chilly...there wa snow on the ground!
3. Paris has a new home :(
4. Skype is the coolest thing! Calling from computer to computer for free!! Let me know if you're a Skype user!!!
