Sometimes life isn't fair. Sometimes you have to hold on tight to what you love. Hold onto your friends and family as you will never know the last time you will see them.

Welcome Ron! The foliage makes me think of unguicularis - a winter iris that blooms here in CA.

Winter iris????! Neat! That would be cool to have an iris that likes to bloom Winter instead of Spring.

Thanks for the pictures, Ron!

We do not have snow in winter (almost do not have, this winter we had half of day of graupel, some years nothing at all, only 1 in 10 years a "real snow" for a day or 2. If this happens city is closed, no one is working, only emergency vehicles or special permissions are moving, until snow is moved from a central streets or until snow is melted).

Local winter is a lot of rain (at least we hope), and a lot of wind. All wildflowers are blooming in winter. More or less like Florida in winter, and hot like in Texas in summer (98-105 F) and now rain at all. Last year we has few drops of rain in July, it was a national news.
