Miricle in the backyard.


This should not have been happening in December and after TWO hard freezes..
Around my bay window, that faces south, I have some seed-grown “Shasta Daisies” growing in super rich organic soil and the main “momma plant” is blooming!

Shasta Daisy blooms in the winter? That is a “first”..
The main “momma plant” just loves her growing area and has survived 2 severe winters so far:

Sorry about the night-time photos, but I got home from work after dark..

This blows my mind.. :-)
