Outdoors and In

Pineapple Sage still going strong, 
despite its delicate zone 9 hardiness.
I was really amazed to see it last Spring, I assumed it had died the December before
-as tropical annuals do- 
but instead it beat the cold-hardiness odds and came back again from the root.
It is in such a lovely warm spot against the brick.
 I find red clay helps to keep roots warm in the winter,
same as it bakes them in July.

Miss Hibiscus keeping the indoor party going strong....

 At least until evening.
