Considered a moderately-drought tolerant plant, Plumbago will survive with less watering Plumbago can also survive some light frosts and even if cut down to the ground will recover.

tarpon springs: Unique Art and Antiques in Tarpon Springs FL - 09/06/12 08:48 AM
Unique Art & Antiques in Tarpon Springs FL I love rocking horses; older is better so I look at them in antique stores when I go. I think I took this picture of the Pelican Rocking Horse at Carter’s Antique Asylum or perhaps the Court of Two Sisters in Tarpon Springs. He is just so sweet and looks old but I suspect he isn’t. He’s just a unique piece that would look good anywhere.
The many antique stores in Tarpon Springs are interesting and full of unique and unusual items. You can spend a whole day there (16 comments)
