It may be cold outside, the first real winter in Iowa for a long time. But at our house we have flowers year round.



I've saved six outdoor plants from winter death. My mother-in-law gives us her Hibiscus every Fall,before she moves back to Florida. I have two now and I'll have to start giving them away if I get anymore.



This plant was too pretty to let die, and I had a perfect spot in the south window to hang it.



Of course I'll always have my favorite winter flower on standby if all else fails.

What are the second and third photos? I really love the color of both of them. The hibiscus is also pretty, but I see them in my sister's garden all the time, so I'm partial to the other two photos. Happy GTS,
Aiyana

Hey i just saw your weblog. I run a forum for members of Iowa's statewide community. We discuss Sports, Politics, News and even other random internet goodies. Anyway I was wondering if you were interested in possibly exchanging a link with my message board:

http://www.515forums.com/
515 Forums

Anyway in exchange for this I would either, allow you to post your own link to your blog in this subforum:

http://515forums.com/phpBB3/viewforum.php?f=29

or I could go ahead and do so myself if you don't want to deal with registration.

If you were to post it though, you could go ahead and see what sort of feedback the users of my site give you and give a description of the blog in your own words. If not, just let me know and I'll list it for you.

Right now, I am working to market my forum to as many Iowa residents to as much as possible and obviously quality back links help with page rank. Since we share the same targeted audience I think this could be mutually beneficial to both of us.

Even if you reject my offer of an exchange you are free to post your link anyway.

If you have any questions, let me know.

Thanks

If I had more sunny windows I'd try that, too, Bev - is that some kind of pink mandevilla in the second photo? Guessing an African violet in purple...nice plant rescues!

But the cutest photo is the little snow bunny.
