It seems to become an even more attractive plant when it is combined with another delightful Autumn tradition: the simple, yet always gorgeous, Chrysanthemum!

Compared to other areas, Chicago ‘got off easy’ in the last forty-eight hours, for which we should be truly thankful.
Please…remember the residents of Oklahoma City and its surrounds in your thoughts and prayers.

…the New Year finally arrives here in Chicago!
It’s been a very sobering year for me, health-wise, and yet, an extremely exciting year, as I’ve gained so many wonderful followers…some of whom have become great friends!!!
Though thousands of miles, and different continents separate us, I wish you all the blessings I possibly can put out there for a very much more prosperous and happy 2013!
My graphic may seem a bit somber, as 2012 certainly spun by quickly, almost too quickly, but I hope you can feel the celebratory undertones in the lovely golds!
I send you all my best regards,
and thank you all so very much…
for making this a very successful year for my work!
After all…each one of you helped, so give yourselves a little pat on the back for that!
I truly appreciate ALL of you!
