Our front deck. The coffee spot is a tad chilly this morning.
Bloom Day Greetings from Ski Country!
Where life would be sad, indeed, without a warm, sunny window.
Huh? I was quite certain I had many more weeks 'til Christmas. (Denial is underrated. When I'm in my denial zone I'm hardly ever stressing out...)
Poinsettia's 3rd Christmas @ Chez Kate
Though I don't why that date was such a surprise. All signs are pointing to the fact that it's later than I thought. Including this 3-year old Poinsettia (grows lush green leaves, outdoors, throughout the summer, comes indoors in September.) She is madly producing festive red leaves in prep for the big day.
The Timely Amaryllis (Most are still in bud stage.)
I should apologize for my long absence from visiting blogs and such sporadic writing on my own humble effort. Life feels a tad out of control this holiday season.
Edna, the Christmas Cactus I've treasured since college, is laden with bright pink blooms.
But, enough about that...
Discovering that Christmas is only about a week away wasn't the biggest shocker on the news.
I also heard that blogger buddies in the Deep South are shivering mightily while here we are, much farther north, peeling off jackets because of the toasty temps.
Please don't yawn at Ms. Cyclamen. While as common as Dandelions, she is my second favorite indoor flowering plant. Can't live without her.
Strange days. I hope your tender southern perennials are cozy under heaps of blankets and that these bizarre weather patterns sort themselves out very very soon.
Blinding Pink is the name of the game this holiday season. :D
