what was to be a post on stone cold women

I intended to post today on the plethora of semi-naked stone women in my mother's garden, but that little gem will have to wait until it cools down a fraction. Today is set to be another scorcher and Inept BG prefers the comfort of inside the home on these occasions.

Instead I will leave you with a couple of purple pretties from the balcony garden. I am beginning to miss my own garden, and purple is my favourite colour, so I am sharing these pictures for your amusement and to sate my homeward yearnings.

The first is a snap dragon that i purchased on a whim, never repotted and has lasted incredibly well despite the odds.

The second is my purple basil in flower - simply stunning

and what oh what has happened to my tomatoes ... ???

Purple Basil is my favorite too! Hi-Five! Don't worry, this spring it'll paint your BG again!

Both are very pretty, and a nice splash of color on a winter day. :)
