It's a Cold, Cold Day

No, there’s not going to be pictures posted from Georgetown. In fact, I didn’t go. Wasn’t that I was too lazy, no, in fact, I came down with a rotten cold and have been stuck up in the house trying to get better. Lucky for me, I have some tomato soup to munch on, and Chase is here to keep me warm.

It’s supposed to be record cold in Austin today too. It’s something like a high in the 30’s. Yipes.

In “it’s gone and we don’t really miss it” news, this picture was taken from the cenizo bush that grew at the end of my driveway. Maybe because of the recent cold, or maybe for other reasons, the neighbors saw fit to dig it out. Yes, you read that right. Cenizo plant is now no more, replaced by some very ordinary looking pansies. (Don’t worry, I won’t bother to photograph them-you’ll just have to take my word.)

Can’t say as I blame them, I mean, the silly bush was taking over the entire driveway.

Until next time…

    Really lovely photo and I wish I had a cutting of that plant to root! Sorry you are down with a cold…but take my advice, Carol…don’t try to “munch” on tomato soup…it makes a big mess…tomato soup is to be “slurped”! : )

    Thanks for all of the kind words.

    @Mythos, these cenizo plants grow like weeds where I live. They have pretty purple flowers too, though the flowers are small, one can do wonders with a macro lens.

    Don’t worry, I’ve been doing a lot of “soup slurping” these past few days. I’m getting good at it. Almost too good. I’d really like some solid food again, please.
