No room for a garden and any indoor plants will get eaten by my lovely kitties but I was able to grow this amaryllis without any little nibbles taken out of it!

Wow! What a fine vegetable garden you have there, Uncle Bob!

My first MIL (born and raised in Gonzales, La) made a meat-stuffed yellow squash baked in Creole sauce that was out of this world. Do you know the dish?

That's a beautiful amaryllis, Mrs. Cuillo!

Here's an oriental lily from my garden...
