frozen December. It's been below freezing most of the month. The Robert Young bamboo seems to glow in the winter time.

I always vacuum up and shred my leaves and then put  them back on the beds with a bit of fertilizer to help break it down to black humus by spring.

the flamingo and frog are still happy

frozen queen palms (don't worry they are throw aways: $6 from Home Depot in May). The temp at the time this was taken was about 21F at 3PM on Dec 15.

huge winter bloom on my epiphyllum cactus opened today.      

my orchid cactus in June (notice  the red blooms not orange)
