I Wonder

OK, I'm guilty.  I am guilty of cravings just like the rest of you, especially if you are sick and tired of the cold and the snow, so much snow and cold.
 I came across these photos of last spring's trip to a succulent and semp garden in a town to the northwest of me.  My sister Mel and I have visited it several times and never come home empty-handed.
 Seeing these photos again, makes me wonder how my own little garden of succulents and semps are surviving the winter.  I was not worried at first, as we started out to have a pretty mild winter.  But, then the bitter cold came before the snows.  That concerns me.  It froze deep so, did my tender plants survive the winters turmoil...or not.  Only spring thaw will tell me for sure.  I have hope all is well.  I saw a rabbit nibbling on the Mother of Thyme yesterday, twice.  This plant however, is not a tenderfoot.  It has survived worse and will again.
 I love all the whimsical ideas that run through my head when I visit here at the Big Brooke Gardens in Cable, WI.  You really must visit if you get a chance to.  You will not be disappointed.
 See, even ideas on the roof of the faux outhouse.
 Joy running down the turtles back, colors of joy, like his patchwork shell.
 Succulents everywhere, either to view or buy.  Click on any photo for a closer look at what you may have missed.
 Someday, I want this, and this, and this and that....someday.
 I hope you enjoyed the short tour.
Me?  I'm going to stay a while yet.
There is so much to see, and touch, and smell, and 
Ohhh, the eye candy everywhere.
Have a beautiful weekend.
I will be over here,
