|Without even any cruise ships in port, the Los Angeles harbor was quiet too|
I took time to take photos of my currently subdued garden, finding a few surprises in the process.
|Hippeastrum 'Giant Amadeus', planted as a bulb in early November bloomed nearly 7 weeks later on Christmas Day|
|I found my first "spring" bloom of Alstroemeria buried under a robust clump of Artemisia californica. Even in the land of early spring, this is an early appearance.|
I had smorgasbord leftovers for lunch and spent much of the afternoon breathing clean air while pruning out-of-control shrubs before my husband and I sat down to a Cornish game hen and roasted vegetables for dinner, then watched a movie based on an Agatha Christie novel. A perfect day! I hope yours was as pleasant.
