Getting ready for the season

The past few weeks have been all about fancy ribbon, glitter, shiny balls and lots and lots of poinsettias, wreaths and trees. It is easy to lose the spirit of the season when everyday brings a new decorating goal. Depending on the year, and when Thanksgiving falls in November, we have a very concentrated 2-3 weeks. Saturday we packed up the shop and loaded it into the truck. What is leftover gets stored for next year. I keep a roll or two of red ribbon around for last minute stragglers but otherwise, it is my turn. Clippers in hand, I got to work. I filled my outside planters with greens and hung wreaths. When Chris returned from the warehouse, we got down to the heavy work. One at a time our potted evergreens got loaded onto the hand truck and hauled up onto the deck. Every one was lit, this year with a combination of white and colored lights. All through the winter, we'll light them when it snows. It isn't only the holiday season that's coming up. Image


Love how you used rhodie branches in there. Great juxtaposition of textures.

That's a beautiful window box. And yes, lights are good for all winter long!


I love when people keep their lights going all winter. Makes it so pretty.
