This is plumbago. This plant survived Hurricane Katrina by hunkering down in our courtyard. Despite Cat 4-5 winds and 35 days of drought, Miss Plumbago grew into a very large bush and has rejoiced since late March with beautiful blue blooms.

Happy Fourth of July to all of you. We're going to Rachel's for burgers and such with the Preacher Group. Should be loud and fun since everyone's children will be there and these preachers are ALL extroverts.

I planted plumbago in our backyard this year and it's just as pretty as yours. Don't you just love those blue blooms? Have a great holiday with the Preacher Group.

when you said LOUD ... I don't think you quite anticipated the cake/child/mum episode.

I'm glad you got some laugh ... and I'm sorry that there is still SO MUCH work to be done after Katrina. I can't begin to imagine ...

blessings and love
