In honor of Mother's Day, and spending a year in a new house, and putting up a shed, and clearing off the screened-in porch, and having Josh's parents visit us for the first time in Florida, Josh and I went to Lowe's and bought some hanging plants for the porch. We talked about buying a jasmine plant- and had decided that we would wait- and then saw this big, beautiful mandevilla plant. Impulsively, we bought it and put it in the ground, and then read that it cant survive temperatures under 50 degrees. Now- that kind of cold is probably a good seven months in our future, but I still feel like this was a poor purchase. If there are too many pictures of the mandevilla, blame it on its overly sensitive structure.
