Splendor in My Windowsill

Studly Man. Perhaps you remember him. He's the cute guy who lives here at Casa de Castro.

Turns out that in addition to being cute, he also has a green thumb.

Look what Studly grew in my kitchen window.
Hanging in the window behind the orchids is the beautiful art glass angel Studly's sister made for me.
Behind the angel and out in the yard is the late re-bloom of a crape myrtle tree. The colors! (These pictures cannot do them justice.)

"...Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these." Matthew 6:28-29

Really it is the love in our home that causes the orchids to bloom.

Orchids are hard to grow. I bought one for my gramma and it only lasted a couple years. She said they are picky.

Beautiful pictures.

What is it this year with the extra blooming of the crape myrtles and the mimosa trees too? I don't remember seeing them do that before.
