Last of the Impatiens

Impatiens walleriana
Synonym: Busy Lizzy
(im-PAY-shuns) (wall-er-ee-AH-nuh)

Glad to have gotten a picture of my hanging Impatiens flowers before they turned black in the freezing temperatures we have had at night. The growing season is really over now although a few flowers here and there seemed to hang on but have that funny look to them (like they came real close to freezing to death).

The Impatiens looked real nice hanging down a steep wall by the swimming pool. We just mixed the colors and it all worked out nicely. Definitely something I will consider doing again next year. Plans are already starting to whirl for next season and my general opinion is to try a few new things and capitalize on what worked in the past.

I must be on some sort of list at the P.C. Richards Theater in NYC as we again won tickets for the private Duffy show. It was really fun and she and her 14-person band sound great. I didn’t know Welsh women could be so hot! (:lol:). Had a great time and enjoyed the tracks from her new album, which is due out in a couple of weeks.
