This week we hit the "Magic Number". Well, it wasn't exactly me. It was the house. The house hit the "Magic Number". See by now most of my family and friends have been running their heat. But not US! Yes, the furnace has been prepared. Cleaned out, filters washed and all. The FURNACE is ready to go. It has been laying in wait so to speak. Until the indoor thermostat sent the signal.
Well the call went out and the furnace performed wonderfully!
My darling husband loves to keep a COOL house in the winter and a WARM house in the summer. I rejoiced when the furnace gave way and warmed me up to 67!
That same day I notice this flower still blooming in my garden. This is the LAST BLOOMER. I believe this is a Cleo and my good friend Marilyn grew it for me from seed. I have NEVER been able to grow a flower from seed and have it survive the transplant outside. She did a great job don't you think?
Even though by the numbers I think this flower should have called it quits it is still blooming on! BLOOM ON CLEO! BLOOM ON! I wish I could bring you in to bloom all winter long. Instead I will have you to look forward to next spring.
