It’s hard…..

to decorate the garden for Christmas,when it looks like this…

but the tile is lookin’ pretty good…the lighter tiles are "swimming" dolphin tiles...

and this…

where I’m standing will be poured concrete,so my garden area is gonna be kinda small.
Just enough room for my Dad’s orchids,maybe….
 
But some things in the garden remind me of Christmas….

The front yard is done.
 
And the inside,too…

These ornaments are vintage.From my Dad’s family,when he was a kid.The Santa is one of the first I ever collected.The plate is Fiesta ware.
 
Soooo….today,I harvested a bunch of turnip greens…

Yep,that’s a bottle of wine,two coffee makers,and a sinkful of dirty dishes in the back ground.What does that say about us?
They are green…..

Pretty soon your pool area will be finished and you will be able to plant your year round decorating.

Have a wonderful Christmas.

The pool is going to be awesome when it is done. Is that bird real? OMG I would love to have birds with some color flying around here. All our birds are black or grey and white. Would that be a bottle of Woodbridge Merlot? (What does that say about me?)

The pool will be great when it's done. It's just hard for a while and then you'll have new decorating to do. Those turnips look good!
