Chinese Snowball

We purchased these beauties in the Spring.  They are gorgeous, huge, but gorgeous.  I usually buy plants and trees in smaller sizes but this year I decided to buy big.  

I planted one in one of our front floating gardens.  You can see the garden island makeover in these two posts:  Makeover and Finish.  This particular Snowball is now beginning to bloom for the Fall!  What a treasure to have!  Now to decide where to plant the other two.  Today talking Snowball Bushes.

We Said Goodbye With Sadness

Our hearts go out to all in our area.  It was only a few days ago and how did this happen?  We live in a relatively small area and things like this just don't happen here, or so we thought.  A tragedy happened that lets us know they do happen and the location makes no difference.

We said goodbye yesterday to a true hero. Chuck and Terrence were friends and fellow officers.  He was never afraid of anything.  Always there when you needed him.  He will be missed.
