Christmas 2013

Christmas dinner - baked tomatoes, roast potatoes in olive oil with fresh rosemary, homemade rolls, ham and cheesecake for desert with fresh blackberries and strawberries.  Yum!

Fall Color

I took these images with my smartphone and obviously I need more practice.  May switch back to my camera for awhile.

The fall colors are so glorious and I waited a little too long to capture them.  My crepe myrtles are already leafless.

Ornamentl pear leaves.

My Christmas Cactus, loaded with bloom buds.

Geraniums brought in from the cold.

Little pepper I dug up and potted.

Paperwhite bulbs peeking through.

This fabulous gold colored poinsettia.  I love this color.

This pic doesn't show the intricate design.  Fascinating

Fall morning

Time to cleanup the greenthread hit by frost.

New Dawn roses blooming more than they have all year.

Foggy morning on the creek.
