Catching Up...A Little...

Here it is past the middle of January, already.

Hope you all had great holidays.  We did.

Many mornings here have been cold and frosty..
Some rain and fog...moisture we really need.

But, makes you want to stay inside and stay warm.

I haven't been doing ANYTHING in the garden.
There are things that need to be done.  But, cold and no energy have kept me inside.

Plus...we've been 'downsizing' some of our stuff.

So, bags and bags of things are being donated.
Somebody can use it.

We celebrated this beautiful girl's birthday, just the other night.
Hard to believe she's so grown up.
Where does the time go?

And, remember this guy?

Well...tomorrow he has a BIG birthday, too.
Mine won't be until the end of October.
Then, in November, we have a BIG anniversary.

So, we're just going to celebrate the whole year.
Our 'dance card' is filling up fast....several trips and celebrations.
I think maybe we're trying to cram it all in,
while we still can.

Not sure what that will do to the garden.
Less time to work.
Depending on others to keep an eye on things.

Thank goodness for native plants.
We even have some the pesky deer don't eat.

So, I'll leave you with this view.
Yes, you've seen it before.  But, it hasn't changed much...maybe a bit
more rye grass, from the the golf course.

I'm off to do more cleaning out.
Maybe, I'll even get some freeze damage cut back in the garden, too.

Stay warm...

Happy Gardening...

Light Up the Night...

Yesterday was our Annual Family Christmas Party.
The day we get together with my nieces, their families,
and their dad & step-mother.

It's a good time to catch up with those members we don't 
see very often.

And, meet any new members, we haven't had a chance to meet before.

This year, it was in Granbury, at my niece's home.

We traveled on Hwy. 281, and came right by Johnson City on our way home.
Their light display is a good one.

The courthouse is lit on all four sides.

There are lots of light displays.
Santa here, in a covered wagon.

 The shops and restaurants around the square, get in on the action.

There is music, and you can get a ride in a wagon pulled by a tractor,
or the regular house and carriage.

A couple blocks south of the square, the
Pedernales Electric Co-op Headquarters,
puts on quite a light show.

I don't usually like just blue lights, but this is amazing.

Now THOSE are lights.

If you're in the area, it's worth the stop.

I gotta go finish up the decorations....and, wrap some gifts.
I get slower every year.

Hope you're enjoying the season.

Happy Gardening...
