I admit I've been doing some holiday shopping--but in truth, I am on the look-out all year for gifts and such. (It's not that I'm trying to get a jump on the season!)
Other living things in the household, on the other hand...
This used to be bright pink, but over the years it has produced lighter blooms. It lives outside in warm months.
I was hoping this would bloom for Thanksgiving, when the Younger Generation will be visiting. Ah, well. Pictures will have to do.
