Where Have All The Flowers Gone?

The flowers are in our spa room. Every fall I can't bear to let the Impatiens, the Begonias and the Geraniums in our various patches freeze to death. So right before the first frost warning, I dig them up and put them in pots and bring them inside for the winter and early spring. Usually I've had to have them all over the living room but this year they have their own bedroom. Our whirlpool doesn't work anymore so we took a half top of our old ping pong table and put it over the whirlpool tub and we have our own redneck greenhouse. We have a hose with a watering wand attached to the whirlpool faucet. It's so easy to water them regularly so they are doing just fine. It's a very pleasant feeling to walk through there in the morning - to look out the windows and see the winter white world and have such a great reminder right in front of me - that hope and flowers spring eternal. Another great season is just around the corner.
