This is my own version of a weekly book haul and all things new on fuonlyknew.

I’m also linking up with The Sunday Post hosted by Kimberly @Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

Sunday Post

Some chit chat.

We’ve had some unusual weather this winter. Don’t normally see cold snaps until later in January and February and they don’t last long. So far we’ve had several brief forays into the 30s and even got a little bit of snow, though it didn’t last long. And I’ve been lucky as my plants and shrubs, which flourished this summer, have weathered the cold well, so far.

This beauty is the biggest I’ve ever seen it and I had to trim it back. Haven’t been doing much with my green things and looks like some creepers are trying to get warm under it. And Quigley snuck in for a bootie shot. LOL To give you an idea of its size, Quigley is 100+ pounds.

And with winter comes oranges. My miniature orange tree is so full of fruit the branches are dipping towards the ground. You can glimpse some of my banana trees behind it. They usually turn brown and I trim them later so they’ll come back bigger and stronger in the spring. Hopefully I’ll get more bananas to show you and there won’t be a hurricane to kill them next year.

Sorry about the finger in the photo. Didn’t notice it until I downloaded the pictures and too lazy to go take more. LOL

Here’s a picture displaying their size.

They’re bite sized and so deliciously sweet. I eat them peel and all. LOL

It’s hard to believe it will be dipping into the 20s tonight. And I have a feeling some of my plants will go bye bye until the spring. Not the oranges though. Unless they get really frozen over many days, they stay happy.

That’s it for this week. I hope you had a Merry Christmas and wishing you a Happy New Year!
