Yes, it's snowing again. OK snow, you can stop now. We have more than we need and we don't want to be greedy.

A view of our snow supply on the deck from the back door of the sunroom. Yeah, history repeats itself and so do I. It's the same thing as last year so I go with the flow. lol...

Today was George's birthday so I baked a nice big carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. 75 candles are too many to put on a cake so I used pretend candles. It's one of my favorite cake recipes. The lighting was very poor but the cake was really good, lol...

My Christmas cacti are still blooming since November 16th even though I neglected my plants this winter. Some of the buds fell off and started blooming again after getting a good drink of water. They are almost indestructible but they are grateful for a drink of water. They dry fast in winter.

This is a Poinsettia that I got from Christine for Christmas 2017. A whole bunch of leaves fell off but it's surviving even though it suffered neglect also. It was late blooming this year. I think my restlessness affected my plants this winter.  I bought some soil and will give them some TLC and hope they will forgive me.

Thanks for stopping by and reading this old woman's rambling and leaving a comment. Please take care of yourselves, your pets, and your plants. Winter is hard on them as much as on us.
Hugs, Julia
