These are shots of my Duranta tree - which I've nurtured in a pot for about 10 years. The white blooms and little berries are so delicate, they belie the toughness of this hearty specimen.
I'm happy to say that after some weeding and watering and cleaning of birdbaths, I actually spent the afternoon out back relaxing with my family today -- swimming and reading. It was delightful, and something I don't do enough of because weeds and errant plants holler at me when I try to sit down most of the time! I just ignored them today.
