My tree is quirky but it is in a pot and will be planted in the garden.  Future large Juniper tree!  Red cast iron vase and Victorian candle holders are put on holiday duty.

T'is The Season

T'is the season for embarrassingly good Southern California weather!
Seasonal Sunday
Staffordshire figure giving a Holiday salute!
Amaze Me Monday
T'is the season to decorate every chandelier in the house.
Getting started with decorations.  I always get a Juniper tree in a pot.  Then my Christmas tree looks very "Cat In The Hat"
and I get a tree to plant in the backyard!

Raindrops on petals.

After a turkey feast with family and friends, today I am moving slow.
Decorated with persimmons from my tree, golden  mums and purple thistle in vegetable ceramic vases.
A good time was had by all.
I have the day after Thanksgiving blues.
I am thankful to live in Laguna, where beauty surrounds you.
