Boxing Day Walkabout

This has been a more-or less green Christmas, with the exception of a few fleeting snowflurries....all that could change according to the recent weather forecast.>Stormy Monday could be upon us again. The dogs and I had a good walk around the garden today. In spite of winter there were many interesting things to see and actually admire. The combinations of green and brown seem quite pleasing this time of year. Our appreciation can change as the seasons do. The winter coloration of PJM is lovely next to the evergreen of the "regular" big leaf rhododendrons. There are always buds to admire.....both rhodie and azalea. December 2010

No More Excuses

I have been putting off "blogging" until we got high speed internet. That momentous event happened yesterday, so I guess I now need to play catch up. The fall is pretty much behond us, Christmas is looming, winter hasn't been too obnoxious yet, so I guess all could be said to be "well" I did a cusory rearrange of the Blog design, but I think it may need some serious tweaking. We have a new dog in our house since Halloween. "Grace" may be with us for awhile, but she is technically a friend's dog. She and Jodi seems to get along fine, but they make more noise as a duo. Christmas preparations are going along without much fanfare. The tree is up, but no presents have been wrapped. I usually do minor decorating, so that isn't much of an issue. We are going to The Christmas Potluck at my former workplace at StFX this evening, so I made a cake.
