Going to be the 60’s all week. Do you remember the 60’s? I sure do. Even though we’ve had a frost, these are few things that have survived. The Lantana out in the open is dead but this hidden under my potting bench is doing just fine.
I was in grammar school in the 60’s trying to be a teen. I remember all this stuff like it was yesterday. I got my first pair of Go Go Boots in 6th grade.
