    Did you find it next to the chimney? Santa was sure good to you. It's beautiful, Cin, I love the delicate colors. How big are the blooms? Oh and hope the weather wasn't too bad for you this Christmas - looked like there were tornados near Tampa.

    I'm not sure how a purpurata can take one by surprise...but she's lovely, Cin!

    Tami, my parents had a tornado watch yesterday, just north of Sarastoa, but they were still there as of last night. Still a lot of wind and rain down there today, though.

    We had a T.watch but fortunately only got 11/2" rain and a little wind. Sorry that it was on Christmas but we really needed the rain.

    McJ, She was hanging up high and I just couldn't see the bud because of the leaves.
