Sunshine Shortage!

Well, not a real shortage of sunshine, just a shortage of it in the evenings by the time I get home! It is hard to take photos for blogging in the dark! These Marigolds definitely have the attitude of sunshine! This is a current photo. Yes, it is still warm enough for them in South Texas.
Sunlight is in its glory through the colored glass of my bottle tree!
The blue bottles are especially delightful in the sunlight.
I think St. Francis agrees that the sunlight through colored glass helps brighten the winter garden!


  1. I hear ya with the dark. I feel like I need to make dinner at 3:00 in the afternoon. Mimi

  2. I love your bottle tree. There used to be a kind of "bottle village" around here. It was sad when the man who had built it got too old to maintain it. They dismantled it because they knew many of the bottle would be stolen, but they put lots of them in a local museum with info about his little roadside village.
    Yours looks beautiful, and so does you marigolds.

  3. Love the bottle tree too! I have one in my back yard. Bobby says it has to go there, so the kids don't shoot the bottles with their bb guns.

    I too am suffering from lack of sunshine! Hurry, DST! Hurry, Spring!

  4. Lovely marigolds.Love the bottle tree. One day I will have one too. Been wishing over 2 yrs. now.

  5. Oh I love your bottle tree. I just asked the gardening center when they will get their bottle trees in... I have to wait until spring.


  6. I am really liking that bottle tree! To cute!

    Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving..
