In the past year or so my small front garden has become a paradise for me. (I am not a gardener, so I do not take personal credit.) After lunch as I sat reading (okay, books crept into the post, no surprise), I noticed that the pink bougainvillea was showing through the only tree whose leaves change color and it struck me as wonderful. The fact that it is 84 degrees on November 3 didn't hurt either. There were also 4 cute birds on the bird bath, but they flew away as soon as I got close.
